    Gillette Wyoming Supercharger Updates

    Things are quiet in NE Wyoming for a while now.The final slice of the 90 corridor doesn't have a permit cone on supercharge.info and doesn't look like it'll be complete for summer travel season.

    Any local folks with their ears to the ground?

    Just for the record, the Sheridan WY supercharging location went online a few days ago, so this Gillette WY location is now the last link in the I-90 chain.

    This is wonderful news!

    A little far away, but when Gillette is done, the only gap left in the I-90, coast-to-coast Supercharger route will be Erie, PA. When Erie is done, I-90 will be the first coast-to-coast route on a single interstate highway.

    Yes. The current workaround is to divert from I-90 when it splits just west of Cleveland, taking I-80 to the Macedonia SpC, then grab I-271 back up to I-90.

    A charger at Erie PA will make a lot of sense. It has been on Tesla's map in the past...

    Finally! Such great news! Hope it gets done quickly; I might use it in mid-late September...

    Taking 80 bypasses Downtown Cleveland as well but has tolls on it, its only 15m down 271 from i90 anyways. I drive that area quite often for work ;)

    Anybody on the ground in/near Gillette? No way this is done before 9/16...?

    I'm headed back to WY--will probably be the first to know. Sheridan took a week and a half to build. Took two weeks for the team to come turn it on--depends on their schedule.

    I just checked with the front desk of the Hampton Inn and they think it will be 3 months before they get this station up and running. Does anyone have better information. I am planning a trip across the USA in Oct and would really love to have this station.

    Pedestals are up but they are waiting on electrical sub, which may take a month or more per the owner.
