    There's a post on Google+ indicating that there's a mostly built supercharger in Ogallala, NE. Can anybody here confirm? The posted picture makes it look like it is close to the McDonald's, whose address is likely 301 Stagecoach Trail.

    Nice find! I looked at google Earth and that is either in back of Margarita's or at the Holiday Inn Express. It is for sure the MD's in Ogallala pictured.

    Probably behind the Holiday Inn Express. I think the red building with the sloped roofs in the back left of the picture must be Margarita's.

    From Google maps images, you are correct. This is from in front of the Margarita's location:
    https://www.google.com/maps/@41.1156896,-101.7101003,3a,75y,349.54h,90t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s3Gebrl5NrLKr_xFaCRAEMw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!6m1!1e1?hl=en-US

    That makes it very clear that the Superchargers are behind the Holiday Inn Express.

    Going to have to be 1 more between Lincoln and this one but that should connect most of I-80. Kearney seems to be about in the middle and it's close to the interstate. Would work for me since I have family there.

    Edit: guess I should have done some reading before posting but my guess was correct.

    Nebraska's first Tesla Supercharger aimed at grocery chain

    Read the link to google +. They list 2 more in construction in the state of NE, both between Lincoln and Ogallala.

    Exciting if correct. About to be 3 more orange cones, and then I-80 almost/substantially done!

    Interesting, I had looked at the pic but didn't read the messages. Suppose he's part of the install team then and would know best.

    .

    The distances look good. Then they'd need a couple in the west to connect to Cheyenne, WY and Denver, CO..

    From the DOT Signage Alternative Fuel Corridors (Does not mean Superchargers, just EV chargers)

    I-80: From Lincoln to Kearney; from Lexington to North Platte; and from Ogallala to NE/WY border.

    US 6: Entire length of corridor from intersection of US 6 and Rt. 31(Nebraska Crossing Outlets) in Gretna NE to the intersection of US 6 and I-80 in Council Bluffs IA. (US 6 is 204th Street and then turns into Dodge / West Broadway)

    Curious to how the site in Gothenburg fits in to the earlier projected sites for Ne. Gothenburg and Grand Island weren't presented at the meeting in Lincoln. Could they be adding additional sites or are these alternate sites because of some problems related to Kearney and/ or North Platte? Hoping, personally, for the former.

    I was wondering that as well. Gothenburg and Grand Island seem to be spaced out better than Lincoln-Kearney-North Platte-Ogallala. I was hoping for Kearney and North Platte but should be able to get by with Ogallala and Gothenburg. Hopefully we'll see additional sites in Kearney and North Platte as well. I know they do have HIE and Ruby Tuesday's in Kearney very close to I-80.

    Glad to see things are finally happening in Nebraska!

    It won't show up on supercharge.info unless an address is known. Got one?

    318 Platte River Road, Gothenburg NE is the closest address which belongs to NE Barn and Grill. It looks to be going in on the empty lot to west.

    Yeah, looks like they could use one in Sidney, NE. Wheatland, WY was also on the map north of Cheyenne but no word on that one yet.

    Originally, I thought Sterling, CO would be a good location but based on the documents submitted for Lincoln, it looks like they might be planning on Fort Morgan, CO instead.

    Don't forget to start a new thread for Gothenburg if you haven't already. Thanks!
