Maybe Lindau Lane by the MOA?

I don't know where the dividing line between tunnel and lid is with respect to the Lowry Tunnel, but I think Lindau Lane would count, along with Target Field/ABC ramps.

Not over a freeway, but Loring Greenway.

And don't forget the Maka Ska to Lake of the Isles future land bridge! Reminds me a lot of the Minnehaha land bridge.

I like it. Except it looks like the development constricts the HCRRA right-of-way making it difficult to colocate the Midtown Greenway trail and a double-track light rail line.

A parkway connection under the greenway would be cheaper and do more for the area in terms of accessibility and park use.

Boring Company approved to build tunnels directly into SFH garages.

So are their plans going to be to have every house have a garage with an entrance to these tunnels? Or only houses where the residents can afford to have their garage hooked up to a tunnel system?

Thank god someone has finally solved the problem of wealthy commuters having to see anything other than the inside of their McMansion and their office!

Elon gonna Elon. I don't hate the guy the way some do--if he stopped today, even if Tesla were to go under, he has greatly accelerated broader efforts towards electrification, and that's an unqualified good thing. But I wish there was a wider recognition that almost all of his side projects are (a) not founded in any sound background or expertise in transportation or urban planning, and (b) transparent attempts to sell more automobiles by ensuring the next generation of infrastructure is as car-centric as today's. It's no different from what GM did back in the day, propagandizing for urban freeways (Futurama!), and buying up bus and streetcar lines.

This kind of reminds me of the tunnel Homer used to go to work in the Stonecutters Simpson’s episode.
