Elon Musk has new plans to tunnel into Chicago

The Boring Company, founded by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, has been selected to build a high-speed underground transportation system that it says will whisk passengers from downtown Chicago to O'Hare International Airport in mere minutes.

The accepted proposal, according to The Chicago Tribune, will involve Musk's Boring Company digging an underground tunnel system to connect the city's downtown area with O'hare International Airport. "He's proven something", Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said of Musk, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Musk's flagship electric auto company Tesla Inc. struggled last year to turn an annual profit for the first time in its 15 years of doing business.

Of course, I have ambition, I have passion for what I am doing, but I never have been insane about all this kind of stuff. Nadal's Grand Slam CV boasts 11 French Opens, three US Open titles, two at Wimbledon and one at the Australian Open.

Musk's plan beat out competition from another bidder, O'Hare Xpress LLC, a consortium of investors and engineering and transit companies. The Boring Company claims that their technology will be capable of transporting people from O'Hare Airport to Block 37 in downtown Chicago in just 12 minutes. The trip now takes 30 to 45 minutes. The work would be done by Musk's The Boring Company, which is now building a test tunnel in Los Angeles.

"We're really excited to work with the Mayor and the City to bring this new high-speed public transportation system to Chicago!" The company will now begin negotiations with the city of Chicago on a final deal for the project. It'll be called The Chicago Express Loop. And Boring's technology is good enough that officials in Los Angeles and Baltimore recently have signed off on initial projects that could lead to much bigger efforts, such as a vacuum tube "hyperloop" from Baltimore to Washington, D.C., and eventually NY.

But in interviews with Chicago newspapers, Emanuel expressed great faith in the ability of Musk, father of the Tesla and SpaceX, to deliver at a cost of roughly $1 billion or less. They say that the project will be "100 percent privately funded". Reuters has not been able to reach the city or the company for immediate comment.

The military doesn't use the term "war games". "Now would not be the time to ease worldwide sanctions against North Korea". Denmark, director of the Asia Programme at the Woodrow Wilson International Centre for Scholars, tweeted .

"Given his track record, we are taking his reputation and saying, "This is a guy in two other transportation modes who has not failed".

Then it must tie this all together with a network of above and below-ground stations without running out of money-the fate that has befallen Chicago's previous high-speed transit dreams. Boring Co. leaves room for the possibility of cars using the system, too. The Loop's 18-mile route supposedly would cost passengers $20 to $25 per trip. Last year, Gregory Hauser, a civil engineer at Dragados who recently managed the replacement of Seattle's Alaskan Way Viaduct-the largest underground highway project in the US-said what The Boring Company attempting is on par with the challenge faced by SpaceX.
