Five-mile hyperloop has been approved for testing

Construction on the state’s High Speed Rail line is underway here, and now, another transportation project has been given the green light.

It’s a five-mile section of a Hyperloop line in an area along Interstate five in Kings county. The Hyperloop is the brainchild of entrepreneur and engineer Elon Musk. The passengers on the hyperloop would ride in pods racing through sealed tubes.

It would be part of a planned sustainable city in Kings county. The group Hyperloop Transportation Technologies has signed an agreement with a developer to build a segment of the system. The deal calls for construction to start next year and be completed by 2019 at a cost of about $100 million.
