    Superchargers are under construction at the I95 Madison rest areas, both northbound and southbound, between exits 61 and 62. Both are 10 stalls. I stopped by this morning to check it out.

    The northbound stations are behind the McDonald's building in the back of the lot (follow the truck parking signs). The conduits are installed, and the concrete pads for the charging pedestals are poured (pictures below).

    The southbound stations are a bit behind. When I stopped by this morning, the workers were building forms for the concrete pedestal bases (conduits were already in place). I did not take pictures (sometimes the workers don't like it).

    I spoke briefly to one of the workers, who confirmed they were Tesla stations. He said they should be ready "in a couple of months."

    Nice! Based on the conduit pattern, this one will be V3 with 3 cabinets. 2 cabinets serving 4 stalls and the third cabinet only serving 2.

    So I've wondered about this - do you work for Plugshare? People tag you into these threads like you are, but your sig says "Note: I am NOT the moderator of PlugShare," so I'm confused.

    Does @Chuq work with @BlueShift on supercharge.info, or run another site?

    1- usually it just concerns questions about PlugShare or why SC locations have not appeared on PlugShare. I think I should change my username honestly.

    2- BlueShift, Chuq, tes-s, myself, and others moderate Supercharge Info. When there is a change to be made at a site, you can call any one of us (with the “@“ so that we are more likely to see it), the more you name, the quicker the response will be, quicker the change will take place.

    If you want to become an editor, the link is here: How to become a supercharge.info editor (note: my process took a while so it might be quicker just to DM BlueShift/Keith through TmC)

    Ah, got it. I had assumed supercharge.info was a one-man show. I didn't realize there were some many moderators/editors. Thanks for doing it.

    I usually make sure @Chuq and @Mr. PlugShare are tagged because they have been very responsive and I think @BlueShift is busy with other things; since @Chuq is in Australia, @Mr. PlugShare is apt to be more responsive during our daytime hours. I sometimes add @tes-s, but I know he is busy working on the Most Superchargers Visited project, so I try not to burden him :)

    Yes. First known V3 site anyway. Since this info is all crowdsourced there could be others out there we don’t know about yet.

    This will be great, it's near my office. Does anyone know how fast can 2016 Model S P90DL charge at one of these? I have a V2 battery. The fastest I have ever been able to charge at a SC v2 was 112 kW.

    I drive by these everyday to work. It looks like all the construction work is done, just waiting for the actual chargers from Tesla.

    I drove by all 3 of the southbound SCs on 95 in CT today, Darien, Fairfield, and Madison, and they're all at the same point.

    All construction looks complete except the SC cabinets and changing pedestals. The ground is all closed up and paving, landscaping, and signs are up, with a coming soon paper taped to them. One of these threads reported that it was expected to be complete "before Thanksgiving" and that looks very likely at this point.
