CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The U.S. Postal Service is scheduled to temporarily close and remove several large mail collection boxes because of tight security during the Democratic National Convention.
Postal officials promise there won't be a disruption in mail service, but some may have to find a new place to drop off their letters.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg police department is planning on putting up a restricted zone through many parts of the Center City. Because of that, mail carriers won't be able to service the large blue boxes many people rely on.
Over a dozen key boxes will be pulled out of service, and pulled off their foundations starting on August 27th.
Many postal mail chutes will also be sealed off. Everything will be back to normal on September 10th.
Some residents and businesses inside the inner loop of I-277 have been notified there may be a change in the delivery routine, but they will still receive their mail even with all the stepped up police presence.
Below, you will find the list from the USPS on which boxes will be taken down. Notices have been placed on all if these boxes to give users advance notice of the impending change.
