Prince George’s County officials blast USPS after tractor-trailers cause traffic, safety concerns

While residents in a Prince George’s County community are happy things have seemingly returned to normal after days of traffic headaches and safety concerns caused by tractor-trailers lined up in their neighborhood, county officials are working to hold the U.S. Postal Service accountable.

The tractor-trailers were parked for days right outside the Timothy Branch section of Brandywine waiting to get into a warehouse being used as a temporary USPS facility.

FOX 5 obtained a letter sent to USPS officials by the county’s chief administrative officer, blasting them over the trucks that had been sitting in the neighborhood.

The letter says the postal service created dangerous conditions and residents were upset with the disregard for the community.

“This was a situation that was completely created by them,” said Rita Robinson, a resident in the Timothy Branch community. “They should have given us some type of forewarning.”
