    This listing just appeared on PlugShare about 10 minutes ago. Apparently, the Newport News Virginia Supercharger is under construction. The Supercharger is said to be located at the Patrick Henry Mall close to the Dick’s Sporting Goods. Newport News is slated to have a Supercharger for this year, so let’s see how this goes.

    Address: 12300 Jefferson Ave, Newport News, VA 23602, USA - 6 stalls 07CABCAF-C1B2-4F9F-85C0-78D7E4CC9A1C.jpeg

    Confirmed. I’ve talked to the PlugShare user who found the location, which tells me the parking area in which the Supercharger will be is dug up and fenced off, and that the estimated opening date is October 15th. PlugShare Location

    Will add this on Supercharge Info

    There's already an existing TMC thread for this location, but it's technically in the wrong sub-forum (Southeast instead of Mid-Atlantic): Supercharger - Newport News, VA

    Yes, it is under construction! Getting these photos now from user Uncle Bill on PlugShare. It seems there is actually 12 stalls rather than 6. He tells me there are about 11 parking stalls for Teslas. Will update Supercharge Info. @Big Earl @JSergeant C4138FB4-61D3-4F0A-8968-7B74CD0E5936.jpeg B82AA776-ED8B-43BD-AA5B-1046B5F09047.jpeg 01E9BD6E-45F9-4116-B2DB-16214FF6E6C2.jpeg

    August 8 - clearly in the early stages of construction. Location: you have to go around back of the Patrick Henry Mall in Newport News. The mall is on Jefferson Avenue and is close to the exit/entrance for I-64. They are to the right of the Dick's Sporting Goods store. You can see the DSG sign logo in this picture.

    I'm in Newport News for the night and thought I would stop by and see if there had been any noticeable progress. No change in the pedestals. I'm glad to see them building this one.

    I know other SuperChargers being built in VA/NC (Cary, Salem, Lynchburg, Madison) are all waiting for the pedestals, as well. Rumor has it, it won't be for another month or two. Let's hope that it is only a rumor!
