What the heck is this all about?
Elon Musk on Twitter
Avoiding accidental death to SpaceX workers going to the parking lot.
SpaceX Tooling is across the road from the main office. My guess is that with a busy road and railroad tracks separating the two, they've decided to dig a tunnel from one facility to the other.
I'm told that three SpaceX employees were recently struck by a passing vehicle as they were trying to cross.
Ah. Maybe that's why they've limited Autopilot for now.
This link shows the issue. Crenshaw Blvd in that area is very busy.

Tunneling in a month? that would imply permits and environmental impact all ready done. Anyone have that info?
The obvious answer to avoiding traffic (when you are rich) is a helicopter, not a tunnel. He is just being funny.
Hyperloop schlyperloop. He's of course equipping his excavating moles with Falcon 9 thrusters and AP2HW!
Elon needs to build his volcano lair underneath SpaceX headquarters and cut his commute time down to a few seconds.
A tunnel under a street for employees is a lot more sane that I would I thought he was up to.
That's what I'd like to know.
I'd assume you need permits and permissions to drill under private property.
Probably something similar to oil drilling
Railroad tracks? Those could offer a legal alternative to all the permitting required elsewhere.
Musk seems to have an obsession with tubes and cylinders, noticing his space rockets, tunneling plans and hyperloop vision.
Instead of having people go from A to B in box-like cars that weigh 25 times as much as the driver (usually the only occupant) and that are as wide as the driver is tall, Musk might consider moving them in sleek, lightweight canister- or pod-like vehicles.
There's a lot of 'space' that can be gained by that... plus a lot of clean air.
While looking for any HyperLoop SpaceX event stuff going on, I saw this excavating approximately matching the description of Elon's "digging starts tonight" tweet. Standard equipment at the surface, and then ?
It's between the area I assume is about logical north (actually just north) of Rocket Road and a large canal, north of a parking structure, across street from main SpaceX campus.
Reused booster completely filled with fuel. Tunnel? Done.
He is starting tonight to dig a tunnel.
He looks on it as a "hobby"
This is what Elon Musk’s mysterious digging tweets are about
Only really necessary if building inspectors notice the construction activity. They can't see underground.
While once again trying to go to the SpaceX event (HyperLoop test event one), I went by the possible tunnel project (no confirmation from my side yet). They brought out a post digger, I'm guessing to put in tunnel side posts, for a construction wall to hold up the dirt on the side they won't dig while digging. Here's a photo.
Honestly, this could be any building, and totally unrelated to any tunnel.
The most likely thing here in my mind right now is a pedestrian tunnel, since someone was run over crossing the street recently.
