Prince George’s County officials blast USPS after tractor-trailers cause traffic, safety concerns
PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY, Md. (FOX 5 DC) – 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.
“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.”
