Missouri lost its bid for a $500 million hyperloop project. Virgin Hyperloop has chosen West Virginia for the certification center and test track.
Missouri was vying for a chance at a rail system to go between St. Louis and Kansas City in 30 minutes.

Governor Parson signed a new law this year to keep state road funds away from the project, keep the project away from I-70’s right of way, and ban the use of eminent domain to build it.
