Elon Musk’s L.A. and Maryland Tunnel Projects Stall Before Digging Starts

Los Angeles Dodgers fans waiting on the promised Dugout Loop could be in for disappointment.

Four years ago, Elon Musk embarked on an ambitious project to connect Washington and Baltimore with an underground tunnel. One year later, Musk’s tunneling company, Boring Co., announced another splashy endeavor: building an underground transit system to shuttle fans to Los Angeles’s Dodger Stadium. Today, neither is close to completion. 

Both projects are currently mired in a regulatory no man’s land of environmental review and have not broken ground. Now, Boring Co. has removed all mention of either of them from its website—a suggestion that Musk is backing away from the projects.
