Any updates on when the Waco location will be expanded?
Personally, I hope they add other locations between Austin & Dallas / Ft. Worth before expanding Waco more.

I do love Collin Street, but I'd prefer to be at a lower state of charge when I need to fill up. Waco never quite works out well for me.

And the construction now. Ugh.

That would bring it to 22 stalls. Impressive.

That’s a lot of power. Wonder if they will go with v3.

Still no 24x7 restroom.

But, Collin St. Bakery will give you a free coffee (during business hours).
Just need to show them your key.

Same for the Lindell (East of Tyler) and Corsicana locations.

Show some support for businesses that have supported Tesla Superchargers. They have actively supported Tesla since 2013.

I'll be happy when we don't have to go offroading to get in the place. Last time three times I've been the frontage road has been torn up with little sign of progress ;)

Ditto that.

Demolition and Construction I-35 has been a quagmire for at least last six or seven years. A segment gets done, then they move to next segment.

Several overpasses and bridges had to be torn down, and temporary roadways have to be provided.

Then the real building gets underway.

Unfortunately, the construction crews are only human, and I-35 being a major route requires keeping two North-bound and two South-bound lanes SAFELY open during rush hours, and most of the typical workday.

Doing demolition typically is the first step, and it is slow, dangerous and tedious work.

The off-roading from the service road will probably be like that for some time.
Just another reason to give your car a wash and cleaning.

Or, do the work around, just charge in Italy or Alvarado in the North and one of the Austin Superchargers from the South.

Patience, Grasshopper.

Yeah just came back from Dallas to San Antonio this weekend and definitely wanted to skip Waco on purpose. I was able to make it from Dallas to Austin in one shot just fine.

The first 300 KWh charger in Texas appears to be coming to Collins street supercharger location. Photos attached. Those are 4 inch pipes being placed into the ground.
