Re: Update on NY Thruway L3's ??

Thu Jun 22, 2017 10:04 am

Rather than start a new thread, I thought I'd revive this old thread. NYS moves at the speed of government, as always. But there is more progress! The press release was from 10 days ago, I'm surprised I only learned about it when I poked around on their website.

http://www.thruway.ny.gov/news/pressrel/2017/06/2017-06-12-mwk-valley-welcome-center.html

The Welcome Center offers new interactive kiosks promoting the state’s illustrious tourism industry, Taste NY local food and beverages offerings, restrooms, and more. In addition, the expanded Welcome Center’s grounds now feature a “Path Through History,” showcasing the rich heritage of New York State's historical past, a Walk of Fame highlighting influential individuals from the Mohawk Valley, an ADA compliant playground, covered porch overlooking the scenic Erie Canal, three electric vehicle charging stations, and pet comfort areas.

The stations weren't there when I stopped at it last year, but I did notice construction there 2 months ago, so I'm guessing this is part of the new things they added.

Someone has added the location to PlugShare, complete with pictures. There are 3 chargers, all of which are CHAdeMO. I think that's ridiculous, and all should be double-headed CHAdeMO + CCS.

Maybe they started so long ago that CCS didn't exist. :lol:

Entirely possible. This is New York State after all. :roll:

Edit: to be clear, I'm rolling my eyes at the state, not at you...

Government projects take way too long.

But now that the site is wired in, they only need to exchange units to add CCS.

True, but they should have put in CCS in the first place. Upgrading the units may be cheap, but it's still more expensive than doing it right the first time. Classic government waste.

True, but c'mon, its government, expectations are low, and at least it's something. Leaf drivers won't mind. ;)

Maybe they got those AVs for free.

At least there's multiple units, here they're only doing one per, but dual plugs, and prewired for 3.

Bolt drivers are going to be SO HAPPY...
2013 "Brilliant Silver" SV with Premium Package and no QC, and 2009 Vectrix VX-1 with 18 Leaf cells.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.
