    I stopped at the Wawa in Burlington right before the Turnpike entrance last night and spotted these being built in the Wawa parking lot adjacent to the Burger King. Haven't seen anything about this site.

    Interesting, great find. I'm guessing this is the location of the proposed Florence, NJ site which is "Coming Soon" on the supercharger map.

    Awesome find, it looks very far along as well.

    Bit of an odd location, so close to the Hamilton and other NJTPK stations. I'm not complaining though!

    That's my guess, this is pretty much on the edge of Burlington and Florence. I'll be interested to see if this ends up a trend with Wawa or a one off.

    Well, now that Sheetz has begun adding superchargers (in addition to at least one Wawa in FL), it looks like it may be a trend!

    Perhaps this Wawa in Mount Laurel NJ will be the location for the planned Mt. Laurel supercharger. It would be a good location. It is near the NJ Turnpike (Exit 4) and 295 with shopping and food nearby.

    This Burlington site is a great one for the PA to NYC trip. It's between the PA Turnpike connector bridge and the NJ Tpke tolls, and literally right off the 130 exit, easy on/off. Those looking for an eastern PA SC near Philly will find this will be the most convenient site around, especially since the King of Prussia site is looking like it might be at the KOP mall, which would be massively inconvenient for pass through travel. I have often gone to this Wawa on my way from the western Philly suburbs to NYC just to get a breakfast sandwich and then charged at Cranberry on the NJ turnpike. Those NJ turnpike sites are now only four stalls so this 8 stall site also bodes well for the coming Model 3 onslaught. All in all this should be a well used site.

    It'll likely be a nice alternative to Hamilton as well, which can be quite a congested area during peak shopping times. It's 5 minutes off I-295, for days when you want or need to avoid the Turnpike.

    Happy to have more options! Maybe too late for most people's summer travel, but yeah, I'd be surprised if it's not ready in time for this coming Thanksgiving. (Never know for sure till it's open, of course.)

    Along Interstates: I-95*
    Along US Numbered Highways (<=5mi): US-130
    Along Auxiliary Interstates: I-276*, I-295

    I-95:
    From: Newark, DE - 66.6 miles
    To: Hamilton Marketplace, NJ - 10.8 miles
    Diversion: 4.7 miles
    From: North East, MD - 85 miles
    To: East Brunswick, NJ - 31.5 miles

    Hamilton Marketplace, NJ (US-130): 10.8 miles
    Egg Harbor Township, NJ (US-130,I-295,NJ-42,NJ-ACE,u,NJ-GSP): 75.2 miles
    Newark, DE (US-130,I-276,NJ-T,I-295,I-95): 66.5 miles
    Harrisburg, PA (US-130,I-276,I-76,I-283,I-83): 120 miles
    Allentown, PA (US-130,I-276,I-476,US-22,PA-309): 67.7 miles

    * There's an ongoing, large construction project that will finally fully connect I-95 with a new interchange and bridges. The I-95/I-276/NJ-T/I-95 section will all eventually be re-signed as I-95, with what's now I-95 beyond the new interchange being re-signed as I-295.

    Bit disappointed in the location for this one. Was hoping it would be near the 206 truck stop a bit north. You would cover all three highways, NJT, 295 and 276. However when there is any new super chargers its hard to complain!

    Need some updated pictures or at least a drive-by status update.

    I decided to stop by tonight. Doesn't look like much progress. Large area of parking lot is still blocked off. Only addition seems to be the charging signs. Stalls are still wrapped in plastic. I didn't get a picture of the supercharger cabinets, but it looks like they're still being installed.
    On a side note, the entrance to Wawa from Route 130 has a very large concrete lip that will definitely damage some wheels/tires if you're not careful. You have to slow down to about 5mph before entering otherwise the concrete lip could definitely give the car a good shake which might damage steering/suspension components. Slowing down to 5mph when exiting off a local highway could be unsafe during busier times. I will email Tesla and let them know, hopefully they can fix it or ask Wawa to fix it.

    I'm heading this way tomorrow (Sunday, September 10, 2017). Any updates? It would be nice to stop here after crossing into NJ from PA. I can make it to Hamilton, but this location would add a little extra room for error. :) Thanks.

    I also visited Burlington, NJ Supercharger today on way home just by chance because I saw it had turned red on the Tesla navigation map as we were driving by on 295 (using the pull-in spot). The chargers are located perpendicular to 130 in the front of Wawa with a view of the adjacent Burger King and 276 exit/on ramps. It is also very convenient to 295.

    Lots of activity today despite the mulch.

    I was surprised that half of the stalls allow general use for Wawa for up to 10 minutes (see sign on the right). I think this is going to be problematic.

    Already today one spot was being used by a non-Tesla (see truck on the right of picture with all the stalls). After 10 minutes we notified the cashier in the Wawa. Shortly thereafter, the ICE car moved to a different spot (maybe a Wawa employee?). There were plenty of open spots.
