    GPD doesn't do the actual construction. The jobs are bid out and area GCs and subcontractors are hired for the construction phase. GPD does the site design and engineering as well as project management up through the permitting phase. Pretty much everything up to the point where dirt starts to move.

    Went back today and I have a 99.9% chance that it's a super charger. Vertical cut lines for around 60ft in the concrete and now conduit is in the ground. Give it a week or two and maybe we'll see if Telsa equipment arrives!

    Would be good to get "start of construction" confirmed so we could update the status at supercharger.info. Oneonta's availability will be key for people doing long range trip planning. @Metalmanstan : I agree with your conclusion that this is the actual SC start of construction. Outside of Boston there are several SCs under construction. It appears that once the "digging starts," it's perhaps 3 months until completion (just a spitball estimate).

    This is totally the start of supercharger construction. I stopped by today - there’s a pavement cut perpendicular to the parking spaces, and a big load of conduit. Let the supercharge.info folks know!

    Good to see progress, watching this one closely. Ithaca, NY just went online as well!

    Conduit in place for all 8 pedestals.

    Installers are the same folks whom have installed several more superchargers including Binghamton, Ithaca, Victory, Waterloo, etc...

    Super nice folks and more than happy to inform us.

    Didnt venture a guess on operational date due to the many variables, but to my non-expert eyes they're making good progress. Turns out this trenching location is on top of a natgas right-of-way so has not been trivial.

    One of the installers mentioned another non-Tesla set of EV charging stations will be installed along the same side of the parking further back.

    No pads yet for xformer and power electronics.

    Some progress at Oneonta. Looking better but work still to be done.

    Interesting - thanks for the update! Looks like all the utility gear is there (transformer (I think), meter, and switchgear), but none of the Tesla parts. There's been speculation about a pedestal shortage in other threads - perhaps that's what's holding things up here. In any case it should be up in short order once those things show up.
