    Supercharge.info is showing a location in Oak Creek, WI.
    It's not not at a Meijer. :p

    Oak Creek, WI

    Along Interstates: I-41*^, I-94*
    Along US Numbered Highways (<=5mi): None
    Along Auxiliary Interstates: None

    I-41:
    From: Pleasant Prairie, WI - 28.1 miles
    To: Green Bay, WI^ - 146 miles
    Diversion: 1.6 miles
    From: Russell, IL - 30.4 miles
    To: Howard, WI - 147 miles

    I-94:
    From: Madison, WI - 82.5 miles
    To: Pleasant Prairie, WI - 28.5 miles
    Diversion: 2 miles
    From: Mauston, WI - 148 miles
    To: Highland Park, IL - 55.9 miles

    Sheboygan, WI (I-94,I-43,WI-23): 65.9 miles
    Traverse City, MI (I-94,u,WI-MI-F-MM**,u,US-31BUS,US-31,MI***-120,MI-20,MI-37): 225 miles
    Ludington, MI (I-94,u,WI-MI-F-MM,u,US-31BUS,US-31): 154 miles
    Cadillac, MI (I-94,u,WI-MI-F-MM,u,MI-46,US-131): 210 miles
    Grand Rapids, MI (I-94,u,WI-MI-F-MM,u,I-96,MI-11): 144 miles
    Pleasant Prairie, WI (u,I-94,WI-165): 28.5 miles
    Rockford, IL (I-94,I-43,I-39): 92.6 miles
    Madison, WI (I-94,US-151): 83.1 miles
    Wausau, WI (I-41,US-45,US-10,I-39,US-51): 194 miles

    This seems like a good filler site that will allow drivers more natural stopping options, covering both warm and cold weather driving, by giving sub-150 mile distances to Green Bay, WI and Mauston, WI, that each will allow comfortable skipping of a Supercharger.

    * Like Pleasant Prairie, WI, I-41 and I-94 are concurrent here.
    ^ Google-fastest route from Oak Creek, WI to Green Bay, WI is actually along I-43 and is 130 miles. Pleasant Prairie, WI to Green Bay, WI is 156 miles.
    ** Milwaukee, WI to Muskegon, MI ferry: subject to hours or conditions
    *** MI designates as M. I just write it as the state code.

    This location is super disappointing to me. I was hoping for more of a closer to downtown location with how close Pleasant Prarie is to Oak Creek.

    This is in the new Drexel Town Square development. While the chargers are in a Meijer parking lot, they are within walking distance to many decent sit-down and fast food restaurants. Also about a mile down the street from Wisconsin's first IKEA opening next summer.

    The Plan Commission Report, with detailed plans, recommending approval is in the meeting packet starting on page 138 of the PDF. The superchargers will be on the east end of the northernmost row of parking spaces.

    Woo! I was the one to get this location added to supercharge.info hot off the press of the oak creek planning commission twitter feed. :cool:

    I don’t even own a Tesla yet but excited to see one popping up in my area.

    Thank you for discovering this future supercharger. This will be very important when I:
    1. Get my model 3
    2. Visit relatives in Milwaukee

    I would have preferred a more central location but I'm glad there will be a "nearby" supercharger in the Milwaukee area so if I need to drive to Milwaukee for the weekend from Madison I will no longer need to conserve juice to be able to make it back.

    I was hoping for one around Johnson Creek, in the outlet mall. That would make the Milwaukee/Madison commute very easy. Also an easy on/off.
    Guess this is better than nothing which is what Milwaukee had before.

    Finally IMG_1119.JPG made it over to the Oak Creek site. Nothing to see. This is where the GPS told me it would be, no vehicles, or construction tape to say for sure where they will be installing these.

    My guess is we'll be lucky if this location is ready this year yet.

    Anyone have an update on how construction is going? Haven't seen pics in awhile.
