Continued Winter Weather impacts Mail Delivery

Continued extreme weather conditions impact mail delivery in some areas

GRAND RAPIDS MI — Extreme weather conditions (snow, ice and high winds) continue to plague the Greater Michigan postal delivery area (Zip code 3 digit prefixes 486-491 and 493-499). 

Due to these extreme conditions, the possibility of non-deliveries due to impassible roads and untreated approaches to mailboxes exists. 

“The safety and well-being of our employees is of paramount concern to the Postal Service,” said District Manager Krista Finazzo, Greater Michigan District. “We apologize for any inconvenience this weather related service disruption has caused.”

“Snow and ice make delivery dangerous and slow,” said added Finazzo.  “We appreciate our customers continuing to maintain a clear path to the mail box – including steps, porches, walkways and street approach.  This helps our letter carriers maintain consistent delivery service not only now but throughout the winter season, she added.”

Customers can call 1-800-ASK-USPS (1-800-275-8777) to obtain information, including available, alternate Post Office retail locations, or check the Postal Service website: The Post Office is always open at  The Postal Service’s smartphone app makes it even quicker to use the most popular functions on, anytime and anywhere.
