Supercharger - Fort Wayne, IN - Illinois Road



There's a report in the Indiana Tesla Owners Facebook page that a supercharger under construction has been spotted at the Meijer on Illinois Road.

Anyone local to the area that can confirm? I don't see either the Illinois or Dupont Road Meijer locations noted on supercharge.info yet.

Should there be a separate thread split out for the confirmed Fort Wayne Illinois road location from the yet unconfirmed Fort Wayne North Meijer Dupont Road location? It's being a bit picky, but many would probably not consider I-69 at Illinois road as Fort Wayne "North". Or just wait until either supercharger comes on line and rename to match the confirmed name on Tesla's site and in-car nav?

* US-33: although on US-33, the existing Fort Wayne, IN Supercharger is also on US-33, is closer to US-33, and the departure point would be the same, so I don't adjust the distances.

New v3 in Fort Wayne, IN to complement the existing v2.

It is also a pathetic splitter of the 127.3 mile gap on I-69 from Indianapolis, IN to the existing Fort Wayne, IN Supercharger, 121.1 miles from Indianapolis, IN and 7.3 miles to Fort Wayne, IN.

But it is noteworthy in that it reduces the gap below 125 miles, meaning that if known locations are built, Tesla would need only 35 new locations to reduce the maximum gap along Interstates (current and designated future) to less than 125 miles. (Although note that that includes start-to-Supercharger and Supercharger-to-end, so there could be other Interstate-to-Interstate connections that would be 125+ miles).
