Miami is the latest city in talks to use Elon Musk’s tunneling company for an underground transportation project.
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez posted a video to Twitter sharing some of the details of The Boring Company’s pitch to the city.
“The order of magnitude in terms of savings is significant,” Suarez said in the video. “We talked a lot about the Brickell Tunnel project, which was priced out at $1 billion, and he [Elon Musk] feels can be done much closer to $30 million.”
A $30 million underground transportation system sure sounds like a bargain. And, Suarez seems keen to push a Boring Company project. He said he intends to share further details with Governor Ron DeSantis and Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava.
Musk reportedly said the Miami tunnel would take about six months to complete.
“I think we have a unique opportunity to create a signature project, not just for Miami, but for the world that will bring people from across the world to see this solution,” Suarez said in the video.
