Late-Night Mail Delivery Surprises Chevy Chase Residents


READ MORE | Chevy Chase Village Filed Formal Complaint Over Mail Delivery Issues Weeks Ago Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night is supposed to keep U.S. Postal Service mail carriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. That's not so much the case recently in Chevy Chase. A number of Chevy Chase residents in the 20815 zip code reported mail delivery around 10 p.m. on Monday. The mail has apparently arrived later and later, some days around 6 p.m. or 7 p.m., in neighborhoods around Connecticut Avenue. The late delivery times caused a bit of a stir on the Chevy Chase Village listserv. "Tonight takes the cake," wrote one resident. "It's 10pm and I just noticed flashing orange lights in front of our house -- it's the mail truck and the mail is just now being delivered!" "Our wonderful mail carrier let us know that her route was changing as of last Friday (we are on Conn. ave) and that our section of the neighborhood was in 'carrier limbo' for at least the next few weeks," wrote another. "We just got our mail too..." USPS spokesperson Laura Dvorak said the 10 p.m. delivery was an anomaly and should not happen again. Adjustments are made to routes based on volume, service needs and other factors as necessary. Flickr photo by Nicole'
