Postal Service Suspends Operations at Fosters Post Office

Update, Nov. 9, 2:30 p.m.:

The U.S. Postal Service says the cause of the suspension stems from a vehicle crashing into the post office wall Saturday.

Temporary repairs to the facility, which is leased by USPS, were made Saturday and permanent repairs are under way. There is no timetable for completion of the work.

The U.S. Postal Service is temporarily suspending operations at the Fosters Post Office over what it says are unsafe conditions.

Customers who use the Fosters Post Office, located at 13467 Highway 11 S. in Fosters, can pick up their P.O. Box mail or conduct any other post office business at the Cottondale Post Office. The Cottondale Post Office is located at 3101 Buttermilk Road in Cottondale and is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and noon to 4:30 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. to noon.

Mail delivery is not being impacted by the suspension.

In a news release, the U.S. Postal Service said:

“The safety and well-being of both customers and employees is of utmost importance to the Postal Service. We are working to resolve this issue and will provide a status update to our customers once a thorough assessment has been completed. The Postal Service appreciates its customers and apologizes for this inconvenience.”

The cause of the suspension was not released officially, but a post office worker in Fosters told WVUA 23 the suspension is because a car crashed into the building.
