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.


· Algiers 70114, 70131 and Elmwood Station 70121, 70123 customers: Carrier delivery service will continue in areas that are accessible. Limited retail service is available at both the Algiers Station and Elmwood Station.


· Carrollton Station codes 70118, 70125, 70178, 70185; Mid City Finance Station 70119, 70179; and Uptown Station 70115, 70122, 70124, 70175, 70182, 70184 customers: Over-the-counter mail pickup and limited retail services are available 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.


· Outside the French Quarter, but within 70116: Mail can be picked up over the counter at the Uptown Station of the New Orleans Post Office, at 2000 Louisiana Ave.


· All other New Orleans ZIP code areas including those served through the Main Post Office in 70112, 70113: A temporary postal annex has been established at Julia and LaSalle streets to provide over-the-counter delivery service, post office box service and limited retail service. Other codes served by the temporary postal annex: 70117, 70177, 70126, 70186, 70127, 70187, 70128, 70188, 70129, 70189, 70141.
