    Mission now is to get a picture of the construction at Maryland House and Chesapeake House.

    I looked at both sites on Sunday night including around the Sunoco/Elevation Burger and didn't see anything.

    I don't see mention in this info of Tesla or Superchargers, but if this is definitely for them, please forward this info to [email protected] so they can add a pin on the website for this location (if you haven't already).

    The actual town is named "North East"? That's gotta be about the laziest name for a town I've ever heard of. Was that someone hard of hearing who was told "We need to name a town in north east Maryland." and didn't hear the word "in"?

    Very close to North East, Maryland is Gilpin's Falls where O.P. Fritchle used the hydro-electric power plant to charge his electric vehicle on December 8, 1908 in what was probably the first EV charging session in Cecil County as documented below.

    LOL man, I was thinking the same thing. This same part of the country has towns called King of Prussia and Cape May Court House. Not to mention Jersey Shore which is in Pennsylvania.

    In fairness, your city is mispronounced by the locals in any language :)

    Have you been up into Lancaster County, PA? Bird in Hand, Intercourse, Blue Ball, and Paradise are all within five or ten miles of each other.

    Out in Colorado, they have Telluride (to xxxx you ride) buried deep in the Rocky Mountains.

    Looks like they are having trouble getting area marked properly as they have submitted new Miss Utility request.

    Extent of Work: LOCATE/MARK: LOCATE A 50 FT RADIUS OF THE MARKED LIGHT POLE, AS WELL AS THE WHITELINED AREA BETWEEN THE LIGHT POLE AND THE TRASFORMER. SEE DRAWING FOR BETTER DETAILS
    Remarks: AREA IS LOCATED AT THE CHESAPEAKE TRAVEL PLAZA. GOOGLE MAPS IS OLD FOR THIS LOCATION. AREA HAS BEEN COMPLETELY RENOVATED SINCE THE GOOGLE PICTURE HAS BEEN TAKEN. THIS LOCATION HAS BEEN INCORRECTLY MARKED ONCE. PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CALL.

    Taken today. Area is fenced off but construction hasn't begun, just like Maryland House.

    As of today (6/8) ground has not broken yet in this fenced-off, remote area in the parking lot (close to the Sunoco station).

    This is the Chesapeake Travel Plaza on June 18. Stopped by on the way down from NY. I didn't see any Tesla crates but the pipes appear to be the same as what I have seen in pictures of other charges under construction. After leaving South on 95 I saw a similar construction area at the Maryland House but didn't stop. It is a large area fenced off that seems much bigger then normal. Chesapeake House s.jpg

    I'm curious to know if Tesla is leasing these locations or if they are buying real estate? Are there any records indicating this?

    Are the rest stops under private ownership? I thought they were contracted under state jurisdiction?
