Elon Musk Boring company get permission to tunnel in Maryland

Elon Musk's 'small project' to get a second multi-million dollar boring machine

Elon Musk, billionaire entrepreneur and CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, has been given permission to use machines from his new startup The Boring Company to build a tunnel that could eventually connect Baltimore to NY via a futuristic high-speed transportation system known as Hyperloop.

Elon Musk got permission from Maryland officials for his Boring Company to build a 10-mile tunnel in the state, the Baltimore Sun reported.

"This thing is real".

Maryland Transportation Secretary Pete Rahn told the LA Times that the tunnel really wasn't any different from the various utility access points that it provides permits for all the time, so it wasn't that complicated from a permitting perspective. "The word "transformational" may be overused, but this is a technology that leapfrogs any technology that is out there today".

Chelsea Comes From Behind To Beat Watford 4-2
This double will go some way to quell the criticism he has been receiving lately. Chelsea on the other hand, have had just 2 days.

The Boring Company recently obtained approval from the Hawthorne City Council to dig a 2-mile test tunnel beneath nearby SpaceX and Tesla's Design Center.

Larry Hogan made the announcement on Twitter that digging will begin in Maryland - the first state to grant a permit to allow building of the Hyperloop, which aims to transport passenger pods at rocket speeds in vacuum-sealed tubes.

No details have been released by Musk or the state offering details of the projects ultimate route or timelines on construction.

It's not clear what type of symbolism this has with The Boring Company, but one can argue that Musk won't stop in the face of seemingly impossible odds to create a vast underground network of high speed tunnels.
