East Falls Post Office reopening delayed, more than a year after Ida flooding

The East Falls, PA neighborhood has been without its own post office for more than a year now, after a scheduled reopening last month was pushed back.

The post office right along the Schuylkill River has been closed since it took on several feet of floodwaters during the remnants of Hurricane Ida last September.

USPS spokesperson Paul Smith said in an email Friday “the projected date to reopen continues to move forward,” and there’s no firm estimate yet.
