When the tunnel underneath Los Angeles is built, it will be capable of carrying pedestrians, vehicles, and cyclists at high speeds underneath the city, circumventing traffic.

CEO Elon Musk, better known for leading SpaceX and Tesla Motors, said on Twitter Sunday that the first test tunnel for his underground "loop" transit concept "is nearly done" and that a special event on December 10 will be followed by free rides in the tunnel at SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, Calif.

No, Musk revealed that his first high-speed transit test tunnel is almost set, and it's opening this year.

Musk tweeted on Monday (NZT) that his aspiring underground transportation project would open its first test tunnel in Hawthorne, south of the city's worldwide airport.

The Boring Company produced a concept video for the service earlier this year which shows passengers entering an open-space concept on street level and being taken to an underground system of railways. Musk went on to explain that the Boring Company will host an opening event on its launch, and free rides will be provided to the public the following day.

The current course of the Test Tunnel is from sister company SpaceX's headquarters in Hawthorne, California and stretches "for up to" two miles along Crenshaw Blvd.

In a series of tweets Sunday, Musk said the tunnel is nearly complete and there will be an opening event on the night of December 10 and free rides for the public the next day.

In addition to the testing tunnel and the East Coast route, the Boring Company lists an underground tunnel project in Chicago.

Elon Musk speaks in Hawthorne, Calif., on September 17. Musk replied, "I think real".
