Boring Company Received Permit to Build NY-DC Hyperloop
Elon Musk announced plans to build a Hyperloop connecting D.C. to New York within 29 minutes and the company received preliminary permit for the same, on February 19, 2018.
The Boring Company owned by Musk received a permit for preparation and preliminary excavation of a site in D.C., the U.S. capital. Its next location is 53 New York Avenue NE, near a McDonald’s café and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
In July 2017, Musk tweeted about verbal government approval to build a multi-state underground Hyperloop on the East Coast. However, the formal approval was only known to be true in February 2018.
The permit he received was to commence operations in Hawthorne, Maryland for a 10.3 mile route. Hyperloop stations would be relatively smaller and as compared to the railway and metro stations such as Union Station and Penn Station in the country. A main line is expected to run between the four aforementioned cities, with smaller lines spurring out from the city’s central station for other potential destinations.
The trip from NY to D.C. takes over three hours, while Musk’s plans to bring it down to nearly half an hour of travel time, would make life a lot easier for travelers.
