LOS ANGELES — Elon Musk's tunneling company, The Boring Co., presented plans to build a transportation tunnel under Culver City, Calif., according to BBC News.

The proposal for the privately funded system that would run underneath the Westside of Los Angeles was reported to have been well-received by some members of the council as a way of dealing with the region's traffic congestion, BBC News reported.
