    Does anyone have any information about the Bristol Supercharger that recently popped up on the map?

    I guess, technically, it is in Tennessee according to the map. Haha....

    Looks like it is right off of I-81 in a shopping center with a bunch of shops / restaurants. It looks to be a good location. 428 Pinnacle Pkwy. Briston, TN.

    It's just another one of the 'coming in 2017' SpC's... :) Meaning, I wouldn't expect more information.

    And, sorry, it's not 'anywhere', it's in the middle of the name 'Bristol', like every other 'planned' new SpC is in the middle of a place name; all of them are the same, if you zoom in far enough.

    Excellent! You would think for the new sites that actually have planning and locations in place, they would have pinned them in place and not on the name.... :) I suspect in the rush of getting the hundreds of 'coming in 2017' sites on the map, they just automatically placed them on the names and without local knowledge (like this linked thread), you (or I, I'm not local :) ) can't tell if it's a TBD or halfway-done.

    Glad to see it's actually happening. I do wish they had had more then 'TBD' for a category for new and expansion. Could have used. expanding, TBD, and in progress.

    The Bristol, *Tennessee* Supercharger is actually under construction now.

    The Supercharger - Bristol, TN thread is in the "Southeast" forum because Tennessee falls under the Southeast list of states.

    Mods, please note.

    I'm pretty sure the vagueness is intentional. Tesla would just as soon avoid a crowd of lookie-loos until a charger is ready to open. (One "coming soon" supercharger, in San Mateo, CA, was initially pinned to the mall where it's expected to go in and was later changed to the neighborhood name on Google Maps.)

    I need this Bristol Supercharger to be ready a little too much. To any of you who are local to the construction, what do you think the odds are that it will be ready by June 21, 2017? Close to zero?
