Offline supercharger sites

I live a couple of miles from a supercharger site. It is in a parking lot used by a grocery store and several other stores and restaurants. Recently they were servicing the pavement surface and surrounded a section of the parking lot with a chain linked fence. The superchargers were within the fenced area so not accessable for charging.

I thought of the people who might need these superchargers. It occurred to me that when I travel it might be a problem if a supercharger site was similarly unavailable.

When a site is temporarily unavailable, is this information automatically included in my car's trip planning calculations? Is Tesla quickly aware when some construction company fences off a supercharger site?
