Since Sheetz has multiple superchargers under construction, I checked Coming Soon locations on Tesla's Find Us page against Sheetz locations and made a call to the Sheetz in Falls Creek, PA. The person who answered the phone confirmed that a supercharger was under construction there and it is expected to be completed in about a week.

Really hope this is true! Would love to take I80 back from the Midwest in two weeks rather than PA turnpike! Thanks for the info.

I'll check on the status of the Falls Creek Supercharger on Monday, July 3. I'll be heading east across 80 in the morning. Hopefully, I get lucky and it's open, so I can take 80 west to get back in the evening.

That's great news. Basically the missing link on the I-80 corridor for my trips back to see the rest of my family.

Odd side note: Sheetz tore down one of its locations last year in order to update it, then rebuilt it within in a couple months - the new store had a CHAdeMO charging station. Another Sheetz did the same thing earlier this year and it has nothing for electric vehicles of any type. Wasted opportunity there.

Now, I can't complain too much because there's a Supercharger about 20 minutes away, and I wouldn't use it being so close to home (under 5 minutes) but it still would be nice to have one in my city.

Yeah! There's an "orange cone" on supercharge.info. Looking forward to visiting it on my trip back home in a couple of weeks if the construction gods allow...

Pics or it didn't happen.

Is there a sheetz in
Bellefonte, PA
?
Yeah, there are two Sheetz in Bellefonte, PA. If one of the Sheetz is getting one it's likely this one --> Google Maps - 820 S Eagle Valley Rd, Bellefonte, PA

It's about 2 miles off of 80, so it's at about the perfect location with a close proximity to the interstate.

Do you want me to run out there tomorrow to see if anyone knows anything? :p

This is brilliant. I was looking at supercharge.info yesterday and noticed that (I think) there are only 4 spots on any east-west interstates left that I cannot manage from coast to coast in my 75D:

1. El Paso, TX - Casa Grande, AZ (I-10)
2. Little Rck, AR - Oklahoma City, OK (I-40)
3. Bloomsburg, PA - Macedonia, OH (I-80)
and
4. the "North Dakota Hole" (I-94)

Other than those, I think I could pick any east-west interstate and drive from Atlantic to Pacific and back, ad infinitum, Forrest Gump electric style.

Then the next day, this thread made its way to supercharge.info and the list was shortened to 3. ;-)

I expect Tesla must be aware of this too, and I hope that means #s 1 and 2 are imminently about to be filled too.

When we might be able to get cross the I-94 may be less certain, but I suppose if Tesla is serious about their alleged "end of 2017" plans, it cannot be too far behind. This is a really cool time to be alive. It's almost like we might get our heads out of our asses and NOT destroy this planet after all.

Interstates: I-80
US Numbered Highways (<=5mi): US-119*, US-219

I-80:
From: Macedonia, OH** - 159 miles
To: Bloomsburg, PA - 136 miles
Diversion: 1 mile
From: Maumee, OH - 275 miles
To: Tannersville, PA - 203 miles

Now as a clue to just how much of a hole it's helping to fill, here are other direct routes:
To: Buffalo, NY (US-219,I-96,NY-78) - 152 miles
To: Victor, NY (US-219,I-86,NY-19,NY-C16,NY-C15/20,NY-436,local,NY-408,I-390,I-90,I-490,NY-96) - 196 miles
To: Waterloo, NY (US-219,I-86,NY-53,NY-C122,NY-54A,NY-54,NY-C15/6,local,NY-14,NY-318,NY-414) - 218 miles
To: Erwin, NY (I-80,US-220,US-15/I-99,I-86,NY-415) - 181 miles
To: Binghamton, NY (I-80,US-220,US-15,PA-14,PA-4014,US-220,I-86/NY-17,I-81,US-11) - 232 miles
To: Harrisburg, PA (I-80,I-99,PA-26,PA-144,US-322,US-22,I-81,I-83) - 155 miles
To: Breezewood, PA (I-80,PA-970,US-322,PA-350,I-99,I-76,I70) - 125 miles
To: Somerset, PA (US-291,PA-36,PA-281,local) - 103 miles
To: Morgantown, WV (PA-830,PA-950,US-322,PA-310,US-119,US-22,PA-66,US-119,PA/WV-43,I-68,US-119) - 151 miles
To: Triadelphia, WV (I-80,PA-28,I-279,I-376,I-79,local) - 150 miles
To: Cranberry, PA (I-80,I-79,PA-228,PA-3020) - 118 miles
To: Mt. Gilead, OH (I-80,I-76,I-71) - 235 miles
To: Lima, OH (I-80,I-76,I-71,US-30,I-75) - 307 miles
To: Erie, PA (I-80,I-79,I-90,US-19) - 142 miles

After this and the identified Wyoming sites the largest gap will be 159 miles. However, there's a significant diversion forced in Macedonia, OH and West Middlesex, PA (due later this year) could help avoid a stop there.

West Middlesex, PA (especially) and Bellefonte, PA are on Tesla's site for later this year.

* Just within range. US-322 is just outside that range.
** _But_ a very significant diversion. West Middlesex, PA will be very helpful to allow some people to avoid it.

Bellefonte, PA was rumored to be at the Weis Market off I-99 Exit 83 (PA-550).

That was the rumor but then someone checked and it didn't pan out. I called both Sheetz in Bellefonte but came up empty. We need somebody travelling along I-80 (probably in an ICE at this point) to take pictures of this site and look for construction in Bellefonte and West Middlesex.
