Plans for High-Speed Travel with Hyperloop Route in Missouri Gain Momentum

    The Missouri Hyperloop Coalition will soon have answers to many questions under review by a feasibility study of a hyperloop route connecting St. Louis to Columbia to Kansas City. The proposed route would be built in the corridor of I-70, and constructed and operated by Virgin Hyperloop One. The Missouri route is ranked among the top five routes under consideration for Hyperloop One. The feasibility study is conducted by Black and Veatch, an engineering firm headquartered in Kansas City, in partnership with Virgin Hyperloop One and the University of Missouri system. A hyperloop route connecting St. Louis and Kansas City would take about 30 minutes or less. Initial results of the feasibility study are expected to be released in October. For the full story on how Missouri became ranked among the top locations in the world for a Hyperloop One route, watch:
