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 highest natural point in the city of Miami is in Coconut Grove, near the bay, along the Miami Rock Ridge at 24 feet (7.3 m) above sea level. Just tunnel here. Don't forget drainage and ventilation

Speaking of the flatness of Florida, next time you see Apollo 13, in the motel scene in "Florida" where Marilyn Lovell loses her ring in a shower drain, note the motel exterior. Behind it, on the left in the distance...you will see mountains. (That motel is in Burbank, CA).

If anyone can do it, Musk can. I hope he knows the challenges in Miami. And better start off higher then 10 feet above sea level and engineer some decent pumps as when hurricanes hit the storm surge will dump quite a bunch of water into those tunnels. Heck the Brickell Apartment i lived in after Andrew hit had standing water up to the 4th floor of the parking garage during the storm. (and yes, people had their cars in the lower levels which were totaled out) If anything he should ask/look at the challenges of the port of Miami tunnel project.
