Have to take a drive by. Maybe head to Mago for dinner tomorrow. They have great margaritas by the way. Fresh juice and Casa Noble Tequila.
It is getting really close...
Monday night ... just looks like they are doing the landscape and need to put up the walls/door surrounding electronics. Most of which is behind the tarps.
This is great. I work very close to here and occasionally am up this way for lunch. There is a Buffalo Wild Wings on the other side of the building you see in the background. When I saw they were putting a Supercharger in Bolingbrook, I was hoping it would be in the promenade (across the street to the west), but this works too! It will make for a nice jumping off point on the days I go straight from the office on trips out of town.
Think for SC purposes this is just about the perfect location in Bolingbrook. In addition to Buffalo Wild Wings there is a Five Guys, Panda Express and if I remember correctly even a CupCake place (if it still exists) in that same building. Across the road to the left of the SC is a Starbucks. All very short walks. Little bit longer walk you have more full service restaurants and shopping.
FYI to you guys and others .... I provided a map with the nearby restaurants above. See this post.
Just got word from a good source - eta is 2 weeks for this to open.
Got similar word. Some electrical parts needed for the ComEd connection (CT Meter, I think). Also local code required ridgid pipe instead of PVC (Tesla typical install) so that made this sites construction a little longer.
Good call, thanks for the reminder. I did see that, but didn't internalize it by the time I came back and finished reading the 2nd page of the thread. Here is the direct link to post #5 on the previous page for the map. New supercharger in Bolingbrook, IL
As noted, it seems that only the meter head is missing...
I drove by at lunch today. Looks like still no meter head. The layout is kind of odd with the 2 empty spots in the middle and the one supercharger on the side.
Haha, I was there about 1:30p today and noticed the exact same thing. Heck I may have been parked at about the same spot you were looking at it!
No news from the Bolingbrook planning guy but I pinged him a few days back and he was going to follow up.
I also drove by today at lunch - the three of us must have passed each other likes ships in the night!
I heard these spots have to be painted first, I was concerned to see no progress on the paint / asphalt today. We have a stretch of good weather coming up starting this weekend, hopefully this allows for the final preparations.
They layout avoids a storm drain where the empty spaces are (there is a 15' storm easement).
Lines are painted now.
Just heard about the Bolingbrook location from a co-worker today. I drive down 355 almost everyday (2x a day actually!)
Ironically, I have been keeping an eye out on the Rolling Meadows location as I work down the street from the Meijer there. No activity there yet by the way. Guess I don't have to convince HR to put an EV charge port in at work anymore...
I'll take some pics the next time I pass by
Planning a trip back to Chicago next week. Have been using North Aurora. Would be nice if your "2weeks" prognostication was holding up!
By my reckoning +14 days should have meant a working supercharger by 18 May. I'd still be happy if your "good source eta of 2 weeks" happens by next Tuesday, 5/30.
Unfortunately, the "2 weeks" does not appear to be accurate, here's a photo from today, 5/23.
So it seems that progress has stalled...
Yeah, I keep driving by there every couple of days. Tesla time - what can you do?
