Resorts World Las Vegas has received approval by the Clark County Commission necessary to move forward with constructing the resort’s passenger station and tunnel.

The tunnel will connect to the Las Vegas Convention Center campus via Elon Musk’s innovative transportation system. This new tunnel project will swiftly transport passengers between the city’s newest integrated resort and the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) via underground tunnels in all-electric Tesla vehicles in under just two minutes.

The decision comes after land-use application and design plans were submitted for the tunnel and passenger station to the Board of County Commissioners on June 1.

Additional details about the passenger station and tunnel will be shared in the coming months.

Resorts World Las Vegas is scheduled to open summer 2021.
