A newly repurposed postal facility in Pasco will make mail and package delivery faster and more reliable in the Tri-Cities region, officials said.

The facility – at the Pasco post office at 3500 W. Court St. – is one of the first sorting and delivery centers to open in the country.

It’s in a large space that used to be a processing center before that work shifted to Spokane more than a decade ago. Pasco postal employees then used the facility to sort mail for routes.

But last year, construction started to transform the 100,252-square-foot facility into a new sorting and delivery center, or S&DC with a facelift and new equipment, and it’s now up and running.

The sorting work done at the West Richland post office also has moved into the facility, and about 300 people work there in all, sorting mail for 100,000-plus addresses in Burbank, Kennewick, Pasco, Richland and West Richland.
