Firstlogic Offers Updates on Street Name Changes
U.S. Postal Service-certified LACS Link has a database of 5 million records, used in automatically updating addresses following street-name conversions, according to Firstlogic, La Crosse, WI. The system also keeps track of new street and address designations for rural routes, which are often made for more reliable 911 emergency service.
LACS stands for Locatable Address Conversion System, which the USPS released in September 2004. Since 1994, about 400,000 rural route/box numbers have changed each year, according to the USPS.
