The Boring Company (TBC) crew worked over the weekend, making progress on the Vegas Loop’s Riviera pit site. The tunnel TBC is building now will eventually lead to the Harry Reid International Airport.
Local independent source Michel, or @Mic_VegasSphere on X, provided an update on the construction of The Boring Company’s Vegas Loop. On Friday last week, Michel saw that a part of the tunnel—returning from the Vegas Loops Westgate station—was already built in the Riviera pit.
“They reach out currently between the Convention Center and Encore, Resorts World, and the Westgate,” replied Michel to a commenter who asked where The Boring Company tunnels were leading. “This current tunnel under construction is the return to the Westgate. The next tunnel will go to the Stratospheres, and then the Strip to Allegiant stadium and eventually the airport,” he shared.
While The Boring Company crew works on the Riviera pit, it may also be preparing to launch the next Vegas Loop station. The Wynn Las Vegas Resort expects Elon Musk’s tunneling company to start operations on the Encore station early next year. In July, TBC announced that Prufrock-2 arrived at Encore Resort. In the same month, Prufrock-1 arrived at Westgate.
The Vegas Loop station will be connected to The Boring Company’s Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) Loop. The Tesla shuttles from the Westgate station will surface at the Riviera station located at the Las Vegas Convention Center’s West Hall Parking lot.
“The Vegas Loop will provide fast and convenient transportation to the Las Vegas community, its visitors, and beyond. The Vegas Loop will include the LVCC Loop and any future service extensions, including those to casinos along the Strip, Harry Reid International Airport, Allegiant Stadium, downtown Las Vegas, and eventually to Los Angeles. Once complete, the Vegas Loop will transport more than 90,000 passengers per hour,” explained The Boring Company.
