Travellers on Ohio’s Interstate 80 will soon be able to enjoy a Supercharged voyage across the state.
In December, Tesla opened 2 Supercharging stations at the Wyandot and Blue Heron service plazas in Genoa.
This week, we found out that Tesla and the Turnpike Authority have reached an agreement to build Supercharging stations at a number of other plazas in the state.
These are the locations we know of so far:
- Tiffin River and Indian Meadow service plazas – West Unity
- Great Lakes and Towpath service plazas – Broadview Heights
- Mahoning Valley and Glacier Hills service plazas – New Springfield
We’d like to introduce the new Tesla Supercharger stations on the #OHTPK! Next time you’re at the Blue Heron or Wyandot Service Plazas (MP 76.9) in Genoa, stop by for a charge! pic.twitter.com/Ncw9yzn1Fv

This is not the first time we’ve seen a turnpike authority team up with Tesla.
Back in 2020, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority teamed up with Tesla to install Superchargers at 8 travel plazas along I-95.
Meanwhile, states like Pennsylvania and Indiana are also getting Superchargers installed at turnpike rest stops.
