    8-bay Supercharger under construction at the Wawa on Naamans Rd near the I-95/495 interchange. Coordinates are 39.817478, -75.457282. There are 6 back-in stalls and 2 pull-in stalls. This is between the Wawa and KFC, in the Northtowne Plaza with Home Depot.
    Sorry about the image quality--I was having trouble compressing the images small enough so that I could upload them without a "File too large" error.

    No dining here except for KFC. But, you can pick up a stack of 2x4s and box of deck screws while you charge.:)

    What might be more important for a lot of people is Total Wine right across the parking lot.

    Practically on my doorstep - and unfortunately in a center that's very annoying to get back out of - since the put in the WaWa the traffic there has been a real pain.

    No dining? It's at a WAWA! I mean, what's a Wawa if not "fine dining"? :D

    They are pretty far along. But over the past 4 days, even before the snow started, I saw no activity at the site when driving past.
    It's a busy parking lot here, but a great location. Easy access to and from I95, close to Philly and the Philly airport.

    Monday afternoon I saw a couple electricians running around, digging in to that box trailer they have parked on the sight. The snow will undoubtedly delay things now though.

    Those aren't covering conduit openings. The St Patrick's Day celebration got out of hand. They'll wake up soon in that pit.
    It's a long tradition in Wilmington and Philly. :D

    Swung by this afternoon, no apparent change in status, still no transformer, St. Patrick’s day folks are still chillin’ in the hole.

    Workers actively wiring today. No transformer yet.

    He seemed to think a month/months(?).

    At least 6 spots are 30 minute general parking, at least one is Tesla only.

    EXTREMELY busy vehicle traffic here. About the worst I’ve seen before.

    I'm not as concerned on the general parking. MOST people aren't hanging out at Wawas for any length of time, so if an ICE parks there, I imagine they're not staying long.

    I hate coming out of here after going to the KFC or the Home Depot on Saturday Afternoons, this is nice though for those times when i do some quick shopping at the Total Wine and it's nice to see one in conjunction with a Wawa.
