Elon Musk's Boring Company merges with Hyperloop for NY to DC transport

However, Musk did not say who had given him approval for his project, but the White House confirmed that there were held "promising talks" about the tunnel with him about his company's drilling company Boring Company. "NY-DC in 29 mins" sent the Internet into a tizzy.

Musk isn't willing to stop with NY and D.C. The billionaire entrepreneur continued to tease his plans on Twitter, replying to another user asking about a potential hyperloop system in Texas.

The Department of Transportation did not immediately return The Hill's request for comment.

The proposed Hyperloop would connect the city centers of New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and D.C., as Musk tweeted in a follow-up.

Kaur's 171 leads India past Australia, into WC final
India will take on Australia in the second semifinal of the ICC Women's World Cup at Derby , England , on Thursday (July 20). She just needed another 17 balls to get to 150 - a phase through which the Australian bowlers were taken to the cleaners.

While there's "still a lot of work needed to receive formal approval", Musk says he is "optimistic" approval will "occur rapidly". If the project is actually approved, construction will begin in conjunction with the company's other talked-about project: underground tunnels in L.A. that aim to relieve vehicular congestion.

If Musk could indeed build a high-speed route between the United States' economic and political centers, it could be a game-changer for the east coast.

Officials in New York City, Washington and Philadelphia said they'd had no contact with Musk or were unaware of the project, according to the Post.

Musk first proposed the hyperloop-a system of reduced-pressure tubes that would hurtle people and packages long distances at super speeds - a almost 60-page public white paper in 2013. "Makes a big difference if they hear from you".

Saudi king pressured USA to seek reopening of Al Aqsa Mosque
The gunmen, all from the Arab city of Umm al-Fahm in central Israel, were subsequently shot and killed by the police. Meanwhile, worshipers have lined up in the streets, dozens at a time, to perform prayers in the streets.

A White House spokesperson told The Hill that the administration has had favorable conversations with the tech billionaire, but declined to say if he had been granted any approval.

This tunnel isn't the only one on the agenda, as Musk plans to kick off the Hyperloop with Los Angeles tunnels to help with its growing traffic problems.

But it does mean that the government is apparently open to Musk's ideas, which eliminates one potential hurdle to this piece of science fiction becoming real. A Boring Company spokesperson told Fortune that the project has received support from "key government decision-makers", but did not provide further specifics.
