BOULDER - Carriers are out in force Monday, delivering mail across the Front Range. However multiple post offices and deliveries are still impacted by the widespread flooding and road closures.

On Saturday, more than 56,000 addresses could not be delivered because of road closures or inaccessibility of mailboxes. This is down from 77,000 on Friday.

Additionally, ten post offices have been relocated to other locations because of flood waters or lack of access. However, the mail is available for pickup at alternate locations, which is especially important information for those waiting on medication, checks, and documents.

Weldona, 80653, mail is now being held at the Wiggins PO, 505 Central, 970-483-7769

Boulder city carriers are delivering to every address that is accessible. If they can't reach the mailbox, the mail will be at the Post Office.

If a home has been impacted by floodwaters and the resident needs mail to go to a temporary address, fill out a change of address at www.usps.gov or pick up a form at the post office.

All other deliveries will be made as long roads remain open, passable and safe. Future decisions will be made after consultation with emergency management officials.
