"Coming Soon" Supercharger Station at Ochopee, FL (Alligator Alley) appears to be under construction (Public)

Please scroll down for the most current information.

When Tesla's Find Us Map indicated that there would be a "Coming Soon" Supercharger Station at Ochopee along Alligator Alley, we knew that it would be at the Miccosukee Service Plaza, because frankly there's nothing else nearby. 

Yesterday, I received the photo below, showing what appears to be the construction of the promised Supercharger Station.  My source told me that he had spoken with the the service plaza personnel and they said it was a Supercharger Station that should be completed in a few weeks. Whereas we are virtually certain that this is a Supercharger installation, nevertheless there aren't any Tesla specific markings yet.

The Miccosukee Service Plaza is located on the Miccosukee Indian reservation. It's address is 47801 W State Rd 84, Ochopee, FL 34141.  It is strategically situated roughly halfway along Alligator Alley (I-75) at exit 49, Snake Road. It's 39 miles from the Plantation Superchargers and 61 miles from the Naples Superchargers.

Its a basic service plaza with gasoline pumps, store, deli, large restrooms and picnic area.

Here's a vicinity map. (For a full-sized image, right click on the image and open it in a new tab.)

Update as of November 4, 2019.



From the above photos we think that there may be 12 charging terminals.  In addition, there appears to be three separate groups of conduits coming up for the Supercharger cabinets.  If this is correct, it would suggest that this is a version 3 Supercharger installation.

A member of the Tesla Motors Club forum posted the above renderings of the future Miccosukee Service Plaza.  At the present we don't have any additional information regarding the expected completion date.  All we currently know is that the renderings were done by Burton Hersh Architects.


If you happen to be traveling along Alligator Alley, please make a point of stopping at exit 49, take some high resolution photos and forwarding them to me.

Thanks.
