Missouri Completes the First-Ever Feasibility Study of a Hyperloop in U.S. for the I-70 Corridor

    High-speed travel through a tube-travel system from St. Louis to Kansas City in 28 minutes is not only possible, a new study says it’s also safe and sustainable. That’s according to a feasibility study conducted by Kansas City engineering giant Black & Veatch. Virgin Hyperloop One had previously ranked Missouri’s route through the I-70 corridor among the top five locations in the world, and perhaps “top three” the company said in 2018. And now Missouri is the first state to complete a full feasibility report. A coalition of groups forming the Missouri Hyperloop Coalition authorized the feasibility study. Virgin Hyperloop One released, what it called, “relevant pieces of the report” directly pulled from the study’s executive summary.
