The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority board of directors on Tuesday approved a pair of easement agreements that will solidify construction of a tunnel linking the Resorts World Las Vegas resort with the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The board also authorized easement access to NV Energy to install a transformer for a charging station for the Tesla vehicles that will be used in The Boring Co.’s Convention Center Loop underground people-mover system.
The easement approvals won’t cost the LVCVA anything.

Wursten was scheduled to take the office Tuesday, but could not attend the meeting.
The LVCVA board is composed of eight elected representatives from Clark County and the cities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson, Mesquite and Boulder City and six representatives from private industry from local resorts and tourism entities.
