Supercharger - Williamsburg, VA

This is just a placeholder to coincide with the "future" SuC in Williamsburg. I'm going to dig around and see if I can find more information. I, for one, am a bit surprised that one was built in Newport News before Williamsburg (due to the amount of tourism in/around Williamsburg). There are only a few highly available level 2 chargers available in Williamsburg, so a Supercharger will be a welcome addition.

I used the HPWC near the College Bookstore quite a bit during a recent reunion. A supercharger would be a great addition! Thanks for monitoring.

@bmah , who can we have merge these two threads?

Done! For future reference, reporting a post in either thread with a note for what to do might be more effective than just tagging a single moderator, that way said person doesn't become a single point of failure.

Bruce.
 
I wonder why they didn't decide to put it in the new Wawa being built at 6446 Richmond Rd? The Richmond Rd location is closer to the interstate, but I guess the Merrimac Trail site is nestled between CW and Busch Gardens. Either way, I'm glad they are moving forward with a much needed SuC in/near Williamsburg.
 
It's under construction, WaWa at Merrimac Trail and Penniman Road near Busch Gardens. Taken this morning 19 Oct 2020

The fences have been taken down but otherwise no change since the last update. There is still no Tesla equipment on site, unless maybe some of it is being stored in that container box.

Also, I suspect there will be frequent ICE'ing at this Wawa, as that row of parking spaces was constantly rotating in and out, these spots weren't taken by employees.

Glad to have something close to home. It’s not the nicest Wawa, and not in the nicest area, IIRC a woman was abducted while fueling her car there some time ago. There’s a great restaurant just up the street, Casa Pearl, tacos and oysters, that is worth trying.

Edit: From the pics looks like they are accessible from both sides, is this correct?

makes you wonder how they decide on the specific locations. I’m sure there are nicer locations in Williamsburg.
