Mail services have been reestablished for every ZIP code in New Orleans, the U.S. Postal Service said Tuesday.

Postal carriers will make street deliveries where possible. Over-the-counter service is available elsewhere.

"We are pleased to be able to reestablish mail services for every ZIP code in New Orleans," USPS Louisiana district manager Tony Ruda said. "[But] while delivery remains the objective, the safety of postal employees and customers remains our No. 1 priority."

Here is a summary of mail service in New Orleans:

· Central Business District in ZIP codes 70112, 70113, 70130: All customers including those served through centralized mailrooms at larger office buildings will receive mail delivery.

· French Quarter within ZIP code 70116: Letter carriers are providing delivery to residents and businesses in the 70116 area bounded by Rampart Street, Esplanade Avenue, Canal Street and the Mississippi River.
