U.S. Postal Service closures on hold, for now

Efforts to close U.S. Postal Service facilities across the country, including in Cincinnati, look like they are on hold for now.

A spokeswoman for U.S. Sen Sherrod Brown said Postal Service officials and members of the U.S. Senate will this afternoon announce a moratorium on closings until May 15.

That would give members of Congress more time to analyze the Postal Service's plan and come up with possible reforms that could save facilities and jobs across the country.

In Cincinnati, the Postal Service is considering the closure of the Dalton Street processing center in Queensgate, which employs about 1,200. The shuttering of Dalton Street would leave Cincinnati as the only major U.S. metro without a postal processing site.
