Splitter! On I-10, Beaumont, TX will split 118.7, 57.4 miles from Baytown, TX and 61.9 miles to Lake Charles, LA.

It's also along 4 US Numbered Highways, although 3 are concurrent from their start in Port Arthur through Beaumont, TX, and one (US-90) runs roughly parallel in the region to I-10.
It will be the first Supercharger along US-287.

This is great news! Has anyone been by the site yet to see if any action has happened?
I'm from the Beaumont area and back in that neck of the woods every few weeks. I'll make a point of going by there and posting updates when I can. It is an excellent location...easy off and on. Beaumont has needed a Supercharger for a long time. It was always to far between the Superchargers in Lake Charles LA and Channelview TX (and now Buccees Baytown TX).

Here are today’s photos.

The location of the chargers is at the front of the parking lot, right next to the street and against the sidewalk, taking up most of what had been a garden bed. This is the south side of the parking lot on Walden Rd. You can see the location relative to the street and surrounding buildings in some of the photos.

There are 3 V3 cabinets. From the photos it looks like there are 10 pedestals for the chargers. But it also appears that they are doing some work across a driveway on the west side, so perhaps a couple more chargers will be placed there for a total of 12? It’s a little hard to tell at this point.

They have recently poured concrete for the base of each charger in the main area, run the conduit, and placed forms for the V3 cabinets and panel box. It looks like they are in the process of placing the forms for the utility charger platform.

One of the photos shows the 3 V3 cabinets, a panel box, and 3 boxes containing the chargers, waiting patiently to be placed.

It’s all a bit of a jumble at the moment. But they are moving right along!

wow.. permit filing to (possible) completion in less than 8 weeks !!
Who knows?

The permit had a start date of 8/22 which just happened to be the day we went by, but they had actually gotten started 2 weeks prior.

The permit lists a completion date of 9/22 which certainly seems doable given how much they have done already.

Interestingly other permits I’ve read seem to routinely list a completion date a year out from the start date.
