Austin to Houston on US 290 will soon be supercharged. Permit issued for 14620 Northwest Fwy. (just east of San Houston Tollway). It’s behind the Rudy’s BBQ.
WebFOCUS Report
This will be very convenient for traffic between Houston and the north side of Austin, rather than using I-10 and Hwy. 71 route through Columbus.

Thanks for the heads up! This will be infinitely more convenient for me since I always use 290 going from Pflugerville to Houston. I should probably read up on it, but how long does it usually take for the construction of a supercharger station like this?
 
Stopped by the Rudy's BBQ and there is definitely some staging of equipment happening. Appears to be 14 parking stalls blocked off....But until I see the Tesla equipment I'm holding off on alerting you know who.

Did see a MS in the parking lot with a personalized plate with Tesla's first name.

That's pretty specific about it being a supercharger :)
The building permit page I linked to two days ago to start this thread said Tesla supercharging station. Not sure why the “another shot” makes it more specific for you.

Happened to be driving to Houston today and I took similar photos as STDRDC13 just posted, so I won’t bother posting them. Area cordoned off and construction equip there ready to dig, but no broken ground yet.

No doubt here, I just skipped to the end of the thread playing catch-up :rolleyes:
 
Tesla equipment arrived while I was visiting with the GC...definitely appears to be an 8 pedestal supercharger location.

Tesla equipment pad is formed and UG conduits are in place. Transformer pad is formed with conduit yet to go. CenterPoint electric pole location is marked with a stake and trench for primary feeders has been dug.
