Las Vegas Prepares for Loop Transportation

Dec 01, 2020

The Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), which is also the World Trade Center Las Vegas (WTCLV), is preparing to celebrate a major addition to the facility as well as to the destination itself with the completion of the West Hall expansion and the Convention Center Loop. An innovative underground transportation system by Elon Musk’s The Boring Company, the Convention Center Loop is on schedule to be finished in December, and will ease navigation of the 200-acre campus.

The West Hall expansion is also on schedule to be finished by mid-December. The 1.4 million-square-foot addition will include 600,000 square feet of leasable exhibit space, 150,000 square feet of meeting space, a 14,0000-square-foot terrace able to accommodate up to 2,000, and a grand atrium. The Convention Center Loop system will stretch from the southeast end of the LVCC/WTCLV to the new West Hall located on the northwest corner of the campus and includes three stations allowing convention attendees to be whisked across the sprawling campus in under two minutes in all-electric Tesla vehicles.

In an exciting development for visitors to Las Vegas, Musk’s company has also begun initial steps to expand its underground tunnel system throughout the resort corridor in what would be known as the Vegas Loop. The project will represent a first-of-its-kind transportation solution for a tourism destination, offering convenient transportation and reduced congestion throughout the Las Vegas resort corridor. The project will increase access and connectivity as far south as the new Allegiant Stadium and as far north as the Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas and could eventually expand to even more areas of the destination.

Like the Convention Center Loop, passengers on the Vegas Loop will be whisked through tunnels in all-electric Tesla vehicles and the tunnels would provide an express connection between any two stations. In addition to the added convenience when getting around Las Vegas, the underground system will be imperceptible at the surface and weatherproof.

Las Vegas and the LVCC/WTCLV are prepared to welcome business visitors back to Meet Smart when the time is right. We can’t wait for visitors to experience our new West Hall and the convenience of our Loop transportation.
