Elon Musk has received permission to start digging for the Hyperloop

Last year Elon Musk announced plans to connect Washington D.C. and New York City with a Hyperloop system that'll get folks from one t'other in 29 minutes. Getting political leaders across the country onboard with the Hyperloop project will be no small task. A company spokesman said on Friday that "a New York Avenue location if constructed, could become a station" in the wider Hyperloop or Loop system.

The permit is for a spot at 53 New York Avenue NE in Washington's trendy NoMa quarter. "[That's] very different from large-station [terminals] considered for train systems". "We're just beginning, in the mayor's office, our conversation to get an understanding of what the general vision is for Hyperloop", DC Mayor Muriel E. Bowser's chief of staff, John Falcicchio told the WaPo.

For example, Musk once tweeted his frustration with LA traffic, which soon mutated into an idea for "The Boring Company" - a legitimate venture that initially planned to bore a series of tunnels beneath the surface of LA, and has since branched out into selling novelty hats and flamethrowers. Estimates released by The Boring Company on the basis of preliminary tests and projects state that the completed Hyperloop project could complete travel time between NY and Washington D.C.to 29 minutes, down from the almost four hours it takes with current means of transport.

According to the paper, city officials don't appear to be committed to the project long-term yet, though the DC Department of Transportation is examining what kinds of further permissions the Boring Company would need to send its massive tunnel-digging drills under city roads and publicly owned land. The Culver City meeting concluded with the city council ultimately voting to hire consultants who could assess the overall feasibility, risks, and benefits of the Elon Musk-led tunneling startup's initiatives before it can make a final decision.
