AUSTIN (KXAN/Austin Business Journal) – Elon Musk wants to make more tunnels in central Texas, this one near his billion-dollar Tesla campus, according to a site plan request.

A “private access tunnel” is proposed off Tesla Road (formerly Harold Green Road) in eastern Travis County, according to the application filed June 21 with the City of Austin. There aren’t many details about the project beyond describing a “private access tunnel with associated upgrades”, under the name “Colorado River Connector Tunnel”.

However, the proposed tunnel does not have the same address as the gigafactory. The address on the application is 12733 Tesla Road, across State Highway 130 from the factory.

Musk’s tunneling company, ironically named The Boring Company, is also trying to build a tunnel in Kyle. In May, the company and the City of Kyle reached a $50,000 agreement to begin engineering work on a potential pedestrian tunnel that would connect the Plum Creek Subdivision to the second phase of Kyle Crossing.
