A mail processing center in Norfolk that was slated for closure has gotten a reprieve.

The center had been scheduled to close Tuesday as part of an
effort by the U.S. Postal Service to cut costs. But, the U.S Senate
passed a measure last month that gives the postal service an $11
billion cash infusion.

Although the bill awaits approval by the U.S. House, the
possibility of the funding has prompted the postal service to delay
the closures.

Spokesman Brian Sperry says there will be no closures in the coming week and that there will likely be a revised list of closures.

The postal service had predicted it will lose a record $14.1
billion this year.
