Elon Musk unveils where he hopes to send you and your car off to work at 150 mph

Elon Musk delights his fans, once again.

Elon Musk shared an image of his Boring Company’s underground tunnel in Los Angeles over the weekend, giving a sliver of hope to the poor souls across the city grappling with one of the worst commutes in the country.

Here’s what it looks like:

Musk said what’s seen here measures only about 500 feet, but he plans on making it two miles long within three or four months. Eventually, he’s looking for the Boring tunnel to span the nightmarish Interstate 405 north-south corridor.

The Tesla TSLA, -1.62% and SpaceX boss explained “it will work like a fast freeway, where electric skates carrying vehicles and people pods on the main artery travel up to 150 mph, and the skates switch to side tunnels to exit and enter.”

Musk, understandably, came up with the ambitious idea while being stuck in — where else? — Los Angeles gridlock. “Traffic is driving me nuts,” he

. “Am going to build a tunnel boring machine and just start digging.”

Here’s a video from earlier this year showing the concept in action.
