Holiday Inn Downtown getting close to opening its doors
Nice find - it looks like it will be adjacent to the back of what is labeled as the US Bankruptcy Clerk building.on Google Maps. Also very interesting is that the hotel manager mentioned that there was also a new supercharger coming to Shreveport.
Holiday Inn Alexandria - Downtown
701 4th St.
Alexandria, LA 71301
Thank you for finding that.
It's the first Supercharger site found for I-49, and also the first on US-71, US-165 and US-167.
Well ... that's 219 miles from Lindale ... I can just barely make McKinney to Huntsville (201 miles) in the 85 ... granted, that is going 75-78mph almost all the way ... may be a stretch getting to Fla beaches that route (e.g. Lindale-Alexandria-RedStick)
I suspect that unless there is some hangup with location/permits that Shreveport will be right behind Alex...
try slowing down, there is no reason that a 220 mile hop can't be made in an 85
Great news! Thanks!
I found it last night while checking the News app on my iPad Pro. I have a Favorites set up for Tesla Motors:
Which shows articles with "Tesla" somewhere in it. This is the current view after I scrolled it down just enough to show the link for this article:
The article summary looked out of place, so I opened it to figure out why it was included. I thought perchance a street nearby was named Tesla or something. After reading it I realized I hadn't seen Alexandria on the supercharger.info map.
No argument there ... but that option is not as easily accomplished in Texas. It's a dog-eat-dog world on Texas interstates and at 65mph, you might as well be wearing Milk Bone underwear.*
nonsense, I've been on plenty of interstates in TX, stay in the right lane and you'll be just fine driving at the speed limits or even a bit under
Looks like Sheveport is already under construction and will be done first.
Please let us know when they break ground. I might re-route my trip next month through Baton Rouge and Alexandria if its open by Memorial Day.
with this shreveport and linsdale coming on like a better route from the east on I-10 can be used to get to dallas and beyond.
I have a friend that stopped by the Alexandria LA Supercharge to take these.

I'd scream bloody murder if someone were to build that close to my air conditioner.
Awesome! It will be close. I need it for June 5th. If not, I will take the I-10 route. Thanks for the pictures.
I'm hoping to use on May 30, but if not ready will route north via Pearl to Shreveport ... Not sounding so good given how long it has taken to commission Lindale and Shreveport
Pictures of Alexandria supercharger construction from last Friday. Thanks to Wendy and Randy Tannehill.
Dallas -> Florida Beaches
This location will help with travel from DFW to the beaches by cutting off almost an hour of travel time (rather than going through huntsville and back roads to lake charles) as well as potentially avoiding some of the I10 flooding issues like we has last year. I believe I have done I49 once (on the way back) rather than State49 + 98 in MS through Hattiesburg which I found to be slightly quicker. Either way, it is nice to have more than one pathway open. Looking forward to seeing this completed before mid July.
