RENO, NV - The Washoe Drive fire impacted normal delivery Friday for some of the mail, according to the U.S. Postal Service. However,most deliveries are expected to made on Saturday.
According to Postal Operations Manager Renee Brown, carriers were out in force Friday, and only a few areas didn't get delivery.
"Tomorrow we expect to make the vast majority of deliveries," she said, “No delivery customer should have to come to the Post Office to retreive mail.”
The only exceptions are those whose homes were damaged. That mail will be held, pending contact with the individual customers.
The mail in affected delivery areas for ZIP Codes 89511 and 89521, which includes Mt. Rose, East Lake, Pleasant Valley, and Old Washoe City areas, will be handled out of the Steamboat Springs Post Office Station, on 75 McCabe Drive.
Affected mail for ZIP Code 89704, the north end of East Lake, will be handled out of the Carson City Post Office, on 1111 S. Roop St.
Delivery will be normal Saturday, barring any road closures or restricted entry areas.
