The endpoint of the tunnel has been named “O’Leary Station” to honor an employee of SpaceX and The Boring Company who recently passed away, according to ArsTechnica.

The Hawthorne tunnel is the company’s test tunnel. The tunnels are part of the Musk alternative transportation proposal to reduce traffic in the city of Los Angeles. You can travel through the tunnels at speeds of up to 250 km / h.
