Rockslide: Vail Valley mail delivery to come later in the day
Vail, CO Colorado
VAIL VALLEY, Colorado – The U.S. Postal Service’s routes to the Vail Valley begin in Glenwood Springs, but a post office spokesman said the Interstate 70 road closure through Glenwood Canyon shouldn’t affect local mail too much.
“The only change is that it will get there later in the day,” said Al DeSarro. “We’re doing everything we can to maintain a high level of service and delivery.”
DeSarro said the Postal Service always tries to keep up with any changes in transportation routes because mail delivery is so important to so many people.
There are no plans to change the Vail Valley’s mail sorting location from Glenwood Springs to somewhere east, he said. The trucks in Glenwood are now having to wait longer to collect as much mail coming in as possible before they leave on the long, roundabout detour route to get to the valley.
“We’re leaving later, so overall it’s a minimal delay,” DeSarro said.
