Just south of Austin, people may one day travel underground to get from point A to B.


Kyle City Council approved a $50,000 professional services agreement with Elon Musk's Boring Company to begin work on a potential pedestrian tunnel.

The 12-foot diameter tunnel would connect the Plum Creek subdivision to the Kyle Crossing mixed-use development, which has a second phase with expanded retail and dining.

Why it matters: This is the first tunnel approved in Central Texas by The Boring Company, which has also been in talks with Austin and San Antonio.


The Boring Company, which quietly relocated to Pflugerville, was recently in the news for securing the largest venture investment in the Austin area at $675 million.
