    Supercharger.info added a blue dot for Miner, MO. That's next to Sikeston.

    The address is 2612 E Malone Ave, which is the address of the Ruby Tuesday.

    So, I'm starting a thread for discussion so Supercharge.info can link back to here.

    Interstates: I-55, I-57
    US Numbered Highways (<= 5 miles): US-60, US-61, US-62.

    I-55:
    - From: Pearl, MS - 352 miles
    - To: Springfield, IL - 238 miles
    I-57:
    - From: Start (Sikeston, MO!) - ~2 miles
    - To: Effingham, IL - 185 miles

    Given those distances, will certainly begin to fill an area of Supercharging desert, .

    I'm guessing this means that Paducah won't be getting a SuC now...o_O

    Location is convenient for viewing the August 2017 total solar eclipse -- the peak eclipse occurs in the Paducah/Cape Girardeau area in the early afternoon...

    Yeah this will be used by us for my Thanksgiving trip to my sister in Little Rock. Last year we stayed overnight in Sikeston while car charged at mobile home park. Now we just need one in Memphis, which has to be appearing soon. Little Rock will be good as well, but we can charge at her house (only 110) around Little Rock before we head back. Still I expect Little Rock will be covered before November as well.

    Wow--GREAT news. I live in St Louis and have a house and relatives in Florida.

    Clueless question: supercharge.info points to this thread for discussion... so where did the original information about the permitting come from?

    I have family in Memphis, so this is a very welcome addition.

    Given the spacing Tesla seems to prefer lately I think this makes Paducah and Mt. Vernon highly likely. :)

    I can't imagine what is taking Memphis so long though, it's baffling.

    Sometimes it comes from the "official" forums on teslamotors.com, and sometimes people just email him.

    Not necessarily.. depends on other factors - Idaho Falls and Pocatello are less than 50 miles apart.

    Miner to the Nashville SC really isn't within the range of a 60, so I'd bet they still put one in the Paducah area eventually.

    The SuC is being built behind the Ruby Tuesday. I spoke with the manager there today. She indicated the SuC should be complete by end-of-May or first week of June by the construction workers estimates.

    Very exciting news! Is anyone in the area able to snap some photos? This SC can cut 250 miles off my trip around mid June.

    This Supercharger can cut off a whole day of trip travel (each way) for me from the north Alabama area! I've been longing for a convenient Supercharger route to I-70 West.

    This is great news!!! I live in Memphis and love going to St Louis several times during the summer to attend Cardinals games. I really hope Memphis and Lit Rock are next on the SC list. When I'm talking to potential Tesla's drivers about SC and I show them the map the first thing they always point out is the 'SC Desert' the surrounds Memphis.
