Traverse City, Michigan 49684
If anyone is in the area, please check the status.
Cool - Confirmed permit approval there?
Any info on Gaylord/Grayling?
I entered the wrong address. I'll have the Mods update the original post.
Correct Location is:
Traverse City, Michigan 49684
Is it under construction or just approved?
I heard it was under way. If anyone is in the area and could verify, it would be greatly appreciated.
I emailed my brother in law to go check it out and sent pictures. We'll see
My brother in law drove through the entire parking lot and found nothing! Will check again in a week.

So what does "I heard it was under way." mean? Right now there is no evidence (presented here anyway) that this supercharger is under construction, or permitted, or even planned. Seems to me like an odd place to put a supercharger. Please elaborate.
Yes, this confuses me, too. Usually blueshift doesn't flag a site as "construction" without something more definite. Is there information somewhere other than this site?
It probably has more to do with their partnership with Meijer than with geography.
I am going there tomorrow and will take another look at the Meijer Traverse
city parking lot. Noticed that someone just put up a construction cone on Supercharge.info. It was not there a couple of days ago.
Jim, if you recall, in Bay City there were surveyer stakes and utility flags in place about a month before ground breaking. It would be interesting if TC is at that stage yet.
@BET: TC is a gateway for western Michigan and Chicago/WI/MN to get to summer and winter vacation spots UP North. From Chicago, a stop in St Joseph gives you enough juice in a 90D or 100D to get to TC, or at least make a quick stop in Cadillac. I can foresee a TC charger will be very popular.
Great news - hopefully Gaylord isn't far behind!
Has anyone heard rumors about a supercharger going in near the Mackinac Bridge? I suppose the UP itself will be a very low priority since it isn't really part of any highly traveled routes, but having one in St. Ignace or Mackinaw City would be helpful for people traveling to destinations in the UP like Marquette or Sault Ste Marie, both of which could then be within reach of most Model S configurations. When I route from Ann Arbor to Marquette now, the in-car navigation takes me through Wisconsin and the travel time is about double what it would take to drive there in an ICE car.
No ground-breaking in Traverse City yet. I did a lap around the Meijer parking lot tonight. There seems to be a new power line in the back parking lot corner, in between the Meijer store and the Carwash but it's hard to tell at this point exactly where the Supercharger stalls are going to be installed.
Here is a photo of that "new" power line. Does anyone have any insight as what to look for next/first?
Without Joel saying what he meant by "I heard it was under way." I don't believe there is any evidence in this thread that there's construction, nor even that a permit is under discussion. Maybe there's evidence somewhere, since @BlueShift typically requires something verifiable.
I've driven my 85 to Marquette four times from lower Michigan, and would never drive around the lake to do it....starting in 2014 when there was no SC network in MI and I could make it from Maumee to Interlochen on one charge (albeit below the speed limit). From Cadillac to Petoskey, stop at Safford's Bay View Inn for some lunch (and free miles with lunch), after which you can make it to Marquette long as you have about 205 miles and don't drive fast. In summer I usually pick up range keeping it at 55. Ignore the nav warnings - better yet, turn the nav off and enjoy the ride.
