    Does anyone have information on this planned Supercharger in Newport News, Virginia? It's shown on Tesla's web site as going online in late 2018 but they don't seem to have identified an actual location for it yet. We're eager for this location to be built since it will be very convenient for our trips to Williamsburg.

    Every supercharger says late 2018. Even the ones that were late 2017. They all were just +1'd to 2018.

    People scan permit databases trying to see things, but it's hit or miss, as stuff shows up, like the Fredericksburg one...

    Like all Tesla comms, would be nice to actually have someone telling us a construction schedule. But that would probably be 'a too boring topic' (that's an EM joke.... :D ).

    I seen the supercharger today at Patrick Henry Mall. Looks mostly complete. Close to Dicks Sporting's Goods. Looks like it should open soon!

    I checked this out Thursday August 8. Looks like they are in the early stages of construction. Looks like it will be a while before this is operational. 2 pictures here.

    Looks like all of the electrical support is finished. Supercharger cabinets and buck boost transformers are all installed with conduit complete. Looks like the site is just waiting on pedestals to show up.

    Here's a link to the page in the Mid-Atlantic region page: Supercharger - Newport News, VA Be aware: All of the new SuC sites in VA/NC are waiting for the pedestals to be delivered. It could be Sept/Oct timeframe, FWIW.
