PULASKI, Va. (WDBJ7) - Work is underway to reopen a shuttered United States Post Office in the town of Pulaski, according to a statement from Senator Mark Warner's office.
According to a spokesperson for Warner, the United States Postal Service intends to reoccupy the original post office within 90 days once necessary repairs to the building's flooring are made.
The Pulaski Post Office closed abruptly in July after an OSHA investigation discovered mold, broken asbestos floor tiles, and lead paint.
The decision to reopen the Pulaski facility follows discussions between the postal service and Warner, who reached out to the Federal agency on behalf of Pulaski town leaders.
"I look forward to remaining in close contact with USPS to ensure this positive development results in a favorable outcome for the Town of Pulaski," Warner said in a statement to WDBJ7 Friday.
