Delivery Resumes to Previously Impacted South Lake Tahoe Routes

Carriers make daily rounds but still ask to help clear the path

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, CA- Delivery has resumed to routes in North and South Upper Truckee and South Meyers previously impacted by severe winter storms. Carriers are delivering to those locations daily and no longer being held for pick-up only.

Carriers across the Tahoe Basin including Incline Village, South Lake Tahoe, and Truckee continue to make every effort to deliver to every address.

We ask homeowners and businesses to ensure sidewalks, walkways, and steps are clear of ice and snow, to help facilitate safe delivery.

Here are a few ways to help keep your carrier safe this winter:

  • Clear enough snow from curbside boxes to allow mail trucks to approach the box, deliver the mail, and to drive away from the box without danger or the need for backing.
  • Walkways should be cleared of snow and ice and allow enough traction to avoid slips, trips or falls.
  • Steps should also be kept clear of ice and snow and in good repair so as not to cause injury to the letter carriers or others who visit the customer’s home.
  • Overhangs should be clear and free of snow and ice to avoid injury.
  • Leave a light on, if possible, to illuminate walkways and porches.
  • Add a street address to mailboxes so they’re easier for carriers to find.

Mail pick-ups for those remaining impacted locations will continue to remain available during regular retail hours.

Impacted Truckee residents served by the Truckee Post Office located at 10050 Bridge St., Truckee, CA 96161 may pick-up their mail at the local post office Monday- Friday 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Incline Village residents served by the Incline Village post office located at 770 Mays Blvd Incline Village, NV 89451 are also encouraged to retrieve their mail at the local post office Monday-Friday 8a.m. – 4:30p.m.

Customers are asked to present photo I.D. for all package and mail pick-ups.

Regular mail delivery will resume to those impacted delivery routes as conditions improve.

The Postal Service apologizes for any inconvenience customers may experience and we remain committed to delivering to our communities daily with a dedicated focus on the safety of our employees.

Many retail services including temporary forwards, stamps and more are also available anytime, online at usps.com.
