Update: Work begins on Telferner Post Office rebuild

Update 9/20/18:

Work has begun on the Telferner Post Office, over a month since a vehicle crashed through its front doors.

The US Postal Service has selected Decko Construction to rebuild the damaged post office. Owner Todd Wedemeier says his crew have begun removing and replacing the brick foundation, which he states is the longest part of the rebuild process.

Wedemeier believes the re-construction of the post office should be completed by the first or second week of October. USPS have not confirmed at this time whether the post office will re-open after construction is completed.

This is a developing story. We will update this story as more information is made available.
