Bealeton Supercharger Coming to Sheetz on Rt. 29
Tesla continues its ambitious expansion of their exclusive fast charging network in the greater Washington, DC area. The latest site to begin construction is at a Sheetz convenience store on US Route 29 about seven miles south of Warrenton, VA at the intersection with Route 17. Locals call this area Opal, but the Tesla “Find Us” map refers to a Supercharger planned for Bealeton, VA with a target opening date in Q3, 2021.
The construction is happening behind the Sheetz at 10101 James Madison Hwy, Bealeton, VA 22712 [map link]. There are two V3 (250 kW max) Supercharging cabinets on site and prefabricated bases for eight stalls.
This will be an especially convenient stop for Tesla travelers who are heading north as the Sheetz is on the east side of the highway. Southbound travelers have to contend with a traffic light to cross the north-bound lanes into the Sheetz. This Supercharger location is closer to the direct route than Haymarket for folks heading to and from DC.
Bealeton Flying Circus
Bealeton, Virginia may best be known as home of the “Flying Circus” air show. The old-fashioned barnstorming demonstration is open on Sundays, May through October. It features aerobatic performances, parachuting, open-cockpit biplane rides and wing walking perfomances. Maybe Elon Musk will come to Bealeton if he ever wants to go wing walking again like he did in England a few years ago.
