    A friend of mine was talking to the Tooele County commissioner today, who was very excited that they are getting a Tesla Supercharger soon.

    I was wondering where the I-80 would be located. Now trips to MMP will be easier after having fun on the track.

    Was there any more specific information on where it would go? There are basically two possible locations near I-80 in Tooele County: Wendover at the Nevada line and the interchange with state highway 36 near the south end of the Great Salt Lake at the opposite side of the county.

    Unfortunately no, my friend wasn't smart enough to ask where, when, etc.

    The businesses at interchange between I-80 and UT-36 have Toole addresses, for example, McDonald's, 8727 Utah 36, Tooele, UT 84074 — McDonald's, Toole - Google Maps. I'm not saying the Supercharger will be at McDonald's, just using that location as an example address.

    Given Tesla's previous choices of Supercharger locations, it's very likely that this Supercharger will go close to an I-80 interchange at one of the interchange businesses.

    Tooele @I-80 is 'truck stop city' - lots of action and several suitable choices for SuperChargers.

    Had some free time today and called Tooele county Planning and Zoning. They said that the Tesla Supercharge station has been approved. ALRIGHT !!!!

    Location is in Lake Point by the truckstop. Address from building permit is
    1568 East Sadleback Blvd.

    My guess on I 80. No inside info just a guess.

    Elko is known to be a location (may be under construction now), and little birdies are saying Winnemucca. Lovelock has been rumored but I don't know if the little birdies are as certain about that.

    Now that you say that I recall Elko something too. That would probably put one more before Deeth.

    Appears to be on the Flying J campus, as close to I-80 as you could possibly get (and where I always stop). No place better than an FJ except of course Little America!

    HINT: If you are continuing East on I-80 into Wyoming be sure to exit at UT 201 which is just around the corner from Tooele! This takes you straight east by Freeway across the urban stretch and back onto I-80E. Avoids the whole downtown SLC sidetrack.

    Then on to SpCs at:

    1. Little America, WY (future) = 164 miles
    2. Rawlins, WY (future) = 144 miles
    3. Cheyenne WY = 150 miles

    Somebody tell TM just how beautiful and classy Little America WY is. Would be an ideal SpC location.

    Good news! My wife was born in Tooele, so we'll have to route through there on our first cross-country trip :)

    Here is my view with info from this site and other reliable sources: Nevada Superchargers - Page 10:

    The route across I-80 now seems to be: Truckee, CA to Nephi, UT - Google Maps

    Truckee, CA
    Lovelock, NV — 126 miles
    Winnemucca, NV — 72 miles
    Elko, NV — 124 miles
    West Wendover, NV —107 miles
    Tooele, UT — 100 miles
    Nephi, UT — 107 miles

    This will be a very nicely spaced set of Superchargers for crossing Northern Nevada!

    My guess was always Truckee, Fernley, Winnemucca, Elko, [West] Wendover.

    I doubt we'll see Superchargers on "The Loneliest Road In America", but Fernley would anchor the western end as well. Plus Western Lithium claims to be building a big lithium extraction plant near Fernley.

    I stopped by the site today and didn't see any signs of construction.

    from my trip to check out the Wendover SC,
    heres the status of Tooele. 1605 Saddleback is the Flying J, truckstop in background of photo looking north, so 1568 ought to be less East than that which is on the other side of Hwy 36 (& since that just now occurs to me, I didn't get a photo). It would be off the left side of this frame

    Comfort Inn is 8580 Hwy 36 Tooele Utah which means I might have to abandon my lobbying efforts to get this one to be called "Lake Point" :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the update. Is that by the Comfort Inn or is it by the Flying J ?
