MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Post Office is asking residents around southeast Wisconsin to please clear ice and snow from driveways and sidewalks to make it easier for postal carriers to deliver mail.

“Snow and ice make delivery dangerous and slow,” said Milwaukee Postmaster Tim Lewis in a press release. “Maintaining a clear path to the mail box – including steps, porches, walkways and street approach – will help letter carriers maintain consistent delivery service and help them get those cards and packages delivered in time for the holidays.”

After several inches of snow fell Tuesday night and more is expected later in the week, USPS said service could be delayed if streets, walkways, or stairs "present hazardous conditions for letter carriers."
TMJ4's Storm Team 4 expects a few inches of snow to fall on Friday and Saturday.

If mail is delayed due to unsafe conditions, it will be delivered the next day.

Simply put, please do your part to help out those postal workers trudging through the snow.
