Elon Musk’s Boring Company Submits Plan For North Miami Beach Tunnel

The Boring Co. is seeking to build an underground Loop around North Miami Beach for Tesla vehicles, the latest idea to help address traffic in an ever-growing part of Florida with limited public transportation.

The plan submitted to the City of North Miami Beach contemplates seven entrances on the 6.2 miles (10 kilometers) tunnel. It would cost $183 million to $220 million based on current prices, and would take less than 36 months to execute, according to the proposal.

Musk’s company has held talks with several South Florida governments since early 2021 as the region tries to improve traffic and foment high-paying jobs.

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez has also entertained the idea of Boring’s tunnels, openly chatting with Musk about it, last year on Twitter. He claims Miami’s water table wouldn’t be an obstacle for Musk’s technology.

In its proposal to the City of North Miami, Boring Co. noted that the recently passed Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, could help the project via grant’s programs. The government’s scoring methods “would likely score Loop favorably,” the proposal stated, and Boring would be willing to finance “a portion of the project costs to support construction and operation.”
