WASHINGTON — Many post offices will be closed for at least the next two Saturdays, and new construction projects will be cut by half as part of a package of budget-cutting measures, the U.S. Postal Service announced Wednesday.
Saturday mail delivery will continue, but up to half of the nation's post offices will be closed Saturday and on Jan. 2, Postmaster General Preston R. Tisch said. In addition, service could be further reduced, with closings of as much as one half-day each week, he said.
As part of the cutbacks, the main post offices in Santa Ana, Fullerton, Fountain Valley, Silverado Canyon and Trabuco Canyon will be closed during the next two Saturdays, officials said.
The construction of a new postal service facility in Los Alamitos has been placed on indefinite hold, along with other projects, officials said.
