Supercharger - San Diego, CA - Carmel Mountain Road (under construction, 24 V3 stalls)

Some photos I took this morning:

Forgot to post about this earlier, and I didn't get any photos, but Carmel Mountain Road was getting dug up on the opposite side of the street on Saturday. It looks like they trenched a little ways toward the median, but they only had the north-most lane closed. No idea if that has anything to do with the supercharger, but maybe?
I think you're right. Seems likely it's for powering the Superchargers. The trenching leads to an existing transformer by the sidewalk.
I didn't notice the temporary Superchargers being active there past two weekends -- even though there were one two Supercharger trailers behind Vons. Today there wasn't any Supercharger there at all. Maybe they're being deployed for holiday travel again. However, I also noticed that the Supercharger icon for this location is now missing from my car's nav.

On the bright side, the construction crew continues to make progress with the permanent Supercharger installations.
I agree that it doesn't look like much progress recently. They've been out there working on it though, and I think it's a case of many smaller things needing to be completed along the way.

I expect it'll appear to come together quickly one they get further along. The longer wait will likely be the SDG&E power and final approval to turn it all on.
