    Anyone now an estimated 'Grand Opening date' or have pics from this week on the progress? Love to see these popping up around DFW! Anyone know why the Tesla 'Coming Soon' to downtown Dallas and Mesquite aren't in the Superchare.info map, but are on the Tesla website? I think I trust this site more ...

    SC.info only puts things on their map when a Permit has been issued or when Construction is actually taking place. They don't just add things to the map if it's only listed by Tesla as "Coming soon" or similar.

    Some locations have been "coming soon" on Tesla's web site for years. Wichita Falls comes to mind, which just started construction this year and I think it was originally planned for 2015. Tesla's map of "planned" or "coming soon" superchargers has always been more aspirational than informational. Supercharge.info is crowdsourced based on actual evidence, not just someone putting a dot on a map meaning we'd like to have one here someday.

    Build update: charge cabinets set and privacy hedge planted, no stalls, no transformer, no digging to install buried line to transformer. This was accurate 6/24 at 10pm.

    Unusual, but not unique. To make things confusing, Minneapolis has exactly the same W/E.

    Drove by the Alvarado Supercharger Sunday on my way to my friend’s house. Here’s some pictures. No stalls yet.

    Still no charging pedestals

    Appears half of the trench connecting cabinets to pedestals has been covered with new concrete.

    All else appears unchanged from latest photos.

    Interesting that this site and Henrietta are missing the stalls. Those are usually the first things to go in.

    Wonder if they have a production problem, or if they are going with a new design.

    Anyone been by the Alvarado location lately? How's it coming along?
    I'll be going up that way in a couple months and it would be a great stop to bypass stopping in Ft Worth.

    No recent (lack of) progress updates, so I stopped by today. Same as the photos above, area for pedestals fenced in, but no pedestals installed. Maybe by the end of October...

    Henrietta / Wichita Falls just got pedestals on Wednesday, so it looks like the shortage is being resolved. Please keep checking.

    Henrietta seems to be the winner, per post in the Wichita Falls thread today!
