The Boring Company gets a permit to dig up Washington DC parking lot

Megan Geuss

The city of Washington DC has approved a permit that will allow Elon Musk's Boring Company to dig up a parking lot just north of Capitol Hill and just east of downtown. The lot, at 53 New York Avenue NE, is on a busy street adjacent to a McDonald's, near the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

The Boring Company doesn't have permits to dig under any streets yet. But according to the LA Times, the city's Department of Transportation is working to find out what other kinds of permits the company would need to pass under city roads and public spaces.

The permit is an interesting step forward in a project that the Tesla and SpaceX CEO announced vaguely last July. At the time, Musk tweeted that he had "verbal government approval" to build a New York-DC Hyperloop tunnel, although it was unclear who had issued such approval. …

Let private corporations build them for cheaper, and have them automated out of the hands of unions. I think this will be cheaper than any government project that requires an endless list of requirements like buying locally, using local union labor and so forth.
