The Boring Co.’s first test project opens next month in Hawthorne, a Los Angeles suburb. In a few years, Boring Company tunnels could take passengers to L.A.’s Dodger Stadium via underground transit pods and from downtown Chicago to O’Hare Airport, as well as several potential transit projects in East Coast cities.
Moving cars underground in cities is expensive, but having power, water, sewer, communications and other utilities underground in cities is essential. And a lot of these systems are old and in bad shape.
LA Mayor Garcetti asked Elon if Los Angeles could get the first sewage tunnel from The Boring Company. Elon said yes.
Low Cost Housing with Bricks that are three to six times cheaper
Elon said the first Boring Brick Store would be opening soon. The price for the bricks is just 10 cents per piece. Red clay standard brick from Lowe’s cost 65 cents each. Masonry Concrete Block cost 34 cents per piece.
Elon’s bricks can handle California’s seismic loads and could reduce the cost of affordable housing.
