    Appears 12 (250kw) Superchargers are coming to Florence Kentucky Meijer near I75/71.

    Boone County Kentucky Planning Commission Notes from 11/6/2019, I believe this was approved on 11/20 but still looking for the documentation/notes of that meeting.

    Location: 4990 Houston Road, Florence, Kentucky (Meijer)

    Great location for through travelers. Lots of places to eat and shop within short walking distance.

    So it said that November 20th for committee meeting, and December 4th for business meeting.
    I think the minutes get approved at the meeting afterwards, so probably won't appear in the business minutes until close to Christmas.

    Thank you for the information.

    Along Primary Interstates: I-71, I-75
    Along US Numbered Highways (<=5mi): US-25, US-42, US-127
    Along Auxiliary Interstates: I-275

    I-71

    From: I-64/I-65 at Louisville, KY - 88.2 miles
    To: Cincinnati - Marburg Ave, OH - 18.6 miles
    Diversion: 1.8 miles
    To: Cincinnati, OH - 25.6 miles

    I-75

    From: Lexington, KY - 76.7 miles
    To: Cincinnati, OH - 25.6 miles
    Diversion: 1.7 miles
    From: London, KY - 143.7 miles
    To: Lima, OH - 135.8 miles

    I-71 and I-75 are concurrent so the diversions should be the same, but aren't by mapping quirk. :p

    Adding some useful density south of Cincinnati.

    Great location and fills a nice gap. I will use this one regularly.

    Somebody always benefits! :)

    Supercharge.info says fastest route for you to get from/to I-71/I-75 is via I-275, which bypasses the Cincinnati Superchargers, so I'm sure you'll be glad of it.

    Nice. I've always thought the Florence, KY Meijer and the West Chester, OH Meijer would be good locations.

    1D8FF208-A3CA-4ACF-BECE-6B100C0BE549.jpeg What does the “days” after Permit denote? The number of days since Tesla’s filing or days until anticipated approval?
    On another note what is the typical timeline for construction and/or completion?

    It's just the number of days since Permit status on Supercharge.info. And Permit status just means "location identified, not yet under construction."

    Just to add to this, it's also (usually) not the hard date the permit was issued, but the date it was added to Supercharge.info.

    Lots of time people discover sites that are under construction but almost complete (The recent V3 site in Vegas being an example). When It's added to supercharge.info is when the clock starts ticking on the site, even though in many cases the place has been under construction (or in permitting) for much longer.

    I will definitely be using this when visiting my wife’s family! I’ve been to that Meijers, Best Buy, and Kohl’s many times.

    I just drove to/by the exact location Wed/12 Feb......and no ground breaking yet. Man I need this one open. Hopefully by summer. Looks like a great location. Restaurants, shopping...the like. Right off the interstate. Perfect.

    I work across the street from this Meijer, and visit the chick-fil-a next door more times a week than I'd like to admit. If there is any movement I will post here.

    Sweet! Let me know when they break ground! Can’t wait.....I was by there a few weeks ago and NADA....still no construction cone on Supercharge.info. I’m honestly not expecting any signs of life or action until maybe this summer. Hopefully I’m wrong.
