Two sites have opened, making 6 for the month and 141 total: (S.) Sacramento, CA (S.R.99); Englewood, CO (Jct. I-25/S.R. 88, S. of Denver). S. Sacramento is presumably to boost capacity, as it's quite close to the existing site in Elk Grove. Englewood is the southern counterpart to Westminster on I-25.

EA has updated their 'Coming Soon' map, and now shows 198 sites in that category. These must include a lot of the Phase 2 sites. Definitely worth a look if you haven't checked for a while, and you want to see if 'your' route(s) will be covered.

Why do you say that? Cycle 1 is supposed to include 484 sites in all. It sounds to me like there are still some missing from their map.

There are 300 high-power QC sites in Cycle 1, not 484, and the map has always just shown those. At the time I wrote the above there were 141 open HP QC sites + 198 more 'Coming Soon' = 339 total, so assuming they continue to only show the high-power sites on the 'Coming soon' map, there must be 39 from Cycle 2. The locations of most of the new ones, well away from major metro areas but needed for road trips, seems to confirm that. Of course, they could change their approach now.

Guy,

The EA site at Panera Bread in Bakerfield has the kiosks in but is a long way from finished. The transformer is not in and the trenching is still open. 4 kiosks.

Thanks. Given how long ago you reported work at Madera, which still hasn't opened, I suspect permit issues are holding up that and many other CA sites.

A site in Buckeye, AZ (I-10 E. of S.R. 85) has opened, #10 for the month and #145 total.
