Billionaire Elon Musk said the transportation tunnel his startup Boring Co. is building in Las Vegas will hopefully be operational next year.

The Tesla Inc. chief executive officer made the comments about the $48.7 million subterranean transit project in the US resort city in Twitter posts late Friday night.

The Las Vegas tunnel is the company’s only major project so far other than a mile-long test tunnel in Hawthorne, California. Pit construction and other preliminary work on the Las Vegas project began in September.

Musk said in a separate post that the company will look to work on other projects following the completion of the tunnel’s construction.

The planned transit system would allow users to ride in Tesla electric vehicles below ground from one side if the sprawling convention center to the other in just one minute.
