    We have word from Tesla that his site is already under construction.

    Also Tesla confirmed their timeline for the rest of I-75 south with this reply - "Thank you for your note. I was excited to see the pictures attached! Macon is just the first stop along I-75 south of Atlanta and due to open this week. If all goes according to plan, we will have sites all the way down to Fort Myers before the end of June. A site in Tifton is just a few weeks behind, but should be opening by the end of this month."

    From the Google Maps link that airj1012 posted, the Tifton location appears to be at Hilton Garden Inn Tifton, 201 Boo Dr, Tifton, GA 31793

    Here is the information I was provided with - "Here is the address for Tifton SC. Confirmed with Zoning Office 1310 highway 82 west 31794" When trying to link that address in Google Maps it brings you to Alabama somehow. I just used the long/lat instead. Not exactly sure what is at that address. From Google Maps, its shows a big parking lot with a gas station, Wendy's, Ruby Tuesdays and then Hilton Garden Inn is directly behind it. Hopefully we'll be able to get some pictures soon.

    FYI, we've had Tesla owners stopping by this location several times per week since airj1012 posted it above, and there haven't been any signs of construction yet. Most recent check was this morning. We hope they're looking in the right area :)

    1310 highway 82 west is the address of the Shell station. I haven't noticed any other Superchargers located in gas stations. Seems odd.

    The location is supposed the be closer to the highway but in the same large parking lot. Might be closer to a different place of business than the gas station. Unfortunately I just found out that the permit is still not done yet. Hopefully this week or next.

    Based on the lot lines Google is showing for that address, my guess is they'll put it here: 31.448014,-83.534499 - Google Maps

    It's been almost another two weeks, heard anything?

    The supercharger.info map has this down as permitted, but per the above I thought it wasn't permitted yet.

    Haven't heard anything yet, but we're hoping for some type of update this week.

    Contractor is on site and construction should begin this week. If anyone is around to check on progress and send pictures that'd be awesome.

    We finally got eyes on the ground to see the construction.

    I'm paraphrasing from the update we got from an Atlanta Facebook group member.

    Supercharger group is from Michigan (the same crew that did Macon, GA). They were planning on completing the location by 7/4 but it appears there is a scheduling issue with the local utility and they couldn't provide the hook up until 7/8. They're hoping this location will be operationalized by 7/11-7/12.

    The location is right behind Starbucks, 1204 U.S. 82 Tifton, GA 31794.

    No they didn't mention. It would be cutting it close if that was the new location, but possible.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but on the satellite map, it looks like a difficult access if you are westbound on 82. It seems that you can't make a left turn into the lot and will have to go past and make a u-turn so you can enter from the right-turn lane. Or maybe go around the block and approach it from behind. Any local knowledge/comments on this? Thanks.
