    Looks like Nacogdoches Supercharger, in East Texas is approaching completion.
    Construction seems to have been under-way since the beginning of the month.

    2615 N Stallings Dr
    Nacogdoches, TX 75964

    @BlueShift

    Hopefully, it will be complete for my transit through East Texas later this month.

    Lots of neighbors because it's in an Interstate hole.

    * Tesla continues its gradual build-out of the Supercharger Network of Cool Place Names.
    ** Future I-69 will be built by upgrading existing US Numbered Highways, with some bypasses around urban centers. It will be following US-59 past Nacogdoches.
    *** Not along the future I-69 route. It's currently US-59,I-30,I-40,I-55,I-57,I-70.

    These remote spots are making a good deal of progress before anyone notices!

    My brother lives a few miles away and I've tasked him to get pics of MDP, Tesla Inverters, and utility x-former.

    It appears the utility Transformer and meter can are set and ready to be energized waiting on the crew to get everything buttoned up

    Thanks for the updates! We have relatives in nearby Zavalla, TX and this new station will help me convince my wife to ditch gas cars completely and get a Model 3. :)

    Wow, this would make our trip from St Louis to Houston MUCH easier. Drive our ICE through here both northbound and southbound. Agreed with other comments, keep us updated

    Looks really close.
    A little signage, a little striping, maybe some wheel stops, a permit, a visit from a Supercharger Tech and Voila!!!

    Another Supercharger for Bighorn to add to his collection....

    Another week has passed. Any news from Nacogdoches? Heading that way in two weeks. This would cut a lot of miles off our trip.

    Construction guys tell me yesterday (Wednesday) that power has been added to the site and it awaits commissioning by Tesla. I'll check on it again next week.

    To be clear @dwploc, the construction guys said that their electrical systems were ready. What seems remaining to do, is for Tesla Corp., itself, to turn the 'on switch' -- AKA the commissioning. I'll be passing through on Tuesday and update then.

    Could one of the Mods please move this thread to be in the Texas sub-forum?

    Just saw a report on Facebook of all places that this SC is live. Supercharge.info shows it live as well.

    That is a really fantastic or gnarly name. It gets many points for uniqueness.

    Up and running. We took a drive around the big loop stopping there today. interesting enough it did not show up on the Tesla Nav today. Not concerned since I checked in here to ensure they were working. What an awesome spot. Denny's is always good. The service station offered clean restrooms and fried pies. it's so funny to be right at a big truck stop. BTW, taking the exit going North, don't pull in where the trucks are thinking you can get to the SC. Nope. Go up to the crossing road, then make your right into the place and you will see them on the right.
