First signs of activity up at Collinsville! There are some utility flags in the area where the permit shows the station will be. There was also an electrical contractor van at the Casey's...but that could have been a coincidence.

Seems like the Superchargers in the Midwest are finally starting to enter construction. Anyone been by the Collinsville Location since last Thursday?
I stopped by Saturday evening and saw the same thing @ratsbew shared above. I also called yesterday and talked to the manager of the Casey's. She said "it's happening", but it's over her head and she doesn't know anything about a timeline.

Good to see, although this one is so close to home for me its probably a moot point. Still good to see more going in. And Ill have to drive by here to keep an eye out on it for others as well and post anythign I see.

Awesome. When I saw the container sitting there i figured it was about to start, now it looks like things are rolling forward. Even though this one is really close to me, it will be good to have, especially early on if/when i get my tesla because I probably wont pre-install a home charger until I take delivery, so I might need this to top up here and there until that gets put in....

I have 400kWh of referral credits for Supercharging so I may end up coming up to Collinsville before they expire to use them up over the course of a few months. I head up there somewhat regularly so it won't be wasted trips.

At first glance yesterday, it didn't appear that any work had started, but when I walked over into the grass for an overview shot I noticed they've already cut out the curb to make room for the concrete expansion to add 8 parking spaces. Also it looks like a light pole and lighting fixture were delivered.

I was just there yesterday and saw the light pole didnt even notice the curb cut out!
