A private company, The Boring Company, has proposed a human transportation tunnel that would run underneath the Westside of Los Angeles. The proposed route is from Hawthorne to West L.A., including underneath Sepulveda Boulevard through Culver City. More information, including a map of the proposed alignment, is available in the Frequently Asked Questions section of The Boring Company's website.
At this time the City of Culver City has not approved any project, nor has the City received an application for any permits or approvals from The Boring Company. The City is currently seeking public input on the proposal.
City of Los Angeles Proposal
On March 27, 2018, the Los Angeles Board of Building and Safety Commissioners approved an initial study and notice of exemption (NOE) for the of a haul route for a 2.7 mile segment of The Boring Company tunnel (terminating underground in Culver City, in the vicinity of Washington and Sepulveda).
On April 11, 2018, Los Angeles Councilmember Paul Koretz introduced an item (via a memo) for the L.A. City Council to approve the same NOE and issue a tunnel excavation permit. The item was referred to the April 19, 2018 meeting of the L.A. City Council Public Works and Gang Reduction Committee. You can continue to track this item as it makes its way through the City of LA process.
The City of LA has a webpage on the topic of The Boring Company tunnel, explaining how the City is permitting the tunnel and next steps.
On April 18, 2018, the City of Culver City submitted a letter to the City of L.A. City Council Public Works and Gang Reduction Committee regarding the proposed project and environmental determination.
