The test tunnel will stretch almost three miles along Sepulveda on LA's Westside, one of the most traffic-congested parts of the city.

After TED Talks tweeted a quote from Shotwell's conversation, Musk replied with his own bit of news: The Boring Company's underground hyperloop would play a role in quickly getting people to the BFR launch ports.

The company assured citizens that if the top soil moves by as little as half an inch (one cm), work will stop immediately.
