USPS won’t speculate on damaged Arlington, NE Post Office building

SteveBlog The U.S. Postal Service is continuing to assess the Arlington, Nebraska, Post Office building after it was severely damaged Sept. 23 when the south wall of the former Village Hall collapsed on it during demolition.

Communications specialist Brian Sperry said the USPS does not want to speculate if the building can be salvaged until they have more information.

Arlington mail operations were temporarily moved to the Fremont Post Office, 348 E. Sixth St., until further notice.  There are 351 post office box customers in Arlington. Customers can pick their mail up at the Fremont office, which is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon.  Residents who can’t pick up their mail during those hours can authorize a relative, neighbor or friend to pick it up for them, but it must be in writing. The person picking up the mail should bring photo identification.  Read more.
