    Supercharge.info now has a permit listed in Rochester at the Hy-Vee at 500 Crossroads Drive SW. Does anyone have any other info? We're visiting family there at Thanksgiving and I'd love to have this done as they live in a condo without convenient charging.

    There is a thread in the wrong place with all the information we have here. That thread should probably be combined into this one.

    I gave Hy-Vee a call, they were extremely nice, offering to check into details for me. The *plan* is to have them in by the end of SEPTEMBER, 2017! They will be located in the NW corner of the parking lot behind the store and near the bridge. They expect to start construction any day.

    I'm very excited because a RT to there is near the end of my range, and I have to take my dad to Mayo Clinic in October. I'll certainly be giving some business to Hy-Vee.

    (Should I report my trip there to anyone, take photos? I'm going mid-October.)

    Fantastic! I'd love to see your pictures if you're willing. I plan to ask my father in law to keep an eye on it (it's his closest Hy-Vee) so I'll post any news I hear as well.

    I work right by this HyVee and drive past it every day. I plan on stopping to take pictures and post any updates as they happen.

    Work will begin on 9/13 according to the Dig Service ticket!

    Please ignore the bug guts on my windshield. I was in a hurry so I didn't have a chance to get out and take more pictures but site work is underway.

    I'd give you about a 1% chance of being able to use it on September 30th.

    Best Wishes!!

    I dropped by it again yesterday. They have the conduit in place but no electrical cables yet. They were pouring cement for the curb. Forms were in place for the Supercharger pads and the transformer pad. They are moving along quickly. I've heard they want the station opened before Oct 1st but time will tell if they are able to do that. The crates with the superchargers have not arrived yet.

    Very doubtful. Drove by it today during my lunch break and no one was there today. I'm wondering if they are waiting on parts/supplies right now. Still no supercharger cabinets

    Nothing new has happened at the site all week. No workers have been there this week.

    If you need to charge when you are here tomorrow, the HyVee on West Circle Dr has some free lvl 2 chargers and a nice restaurant inside.
