Postal Service Proceeds with Relocation of the Benning Station Post Office

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Postal Service is proposing the relocation of the Benning Station Post Office, located at 3924 Minnesota Ave. NE, Washington, DC 20019, to 3937 ½ Minnesota Ave. NE, Washington, DC 20019.

The Postal Service has decided to proceed with the relocation because the current landlord has not renewed the lease.

This project will allow the Postal Service to maintain retail operations for our customers in the Benning Station vicinity for the long term. Additionally, the Postal Service plans to provide services at the Benning Station facility until the replacement facility is open and operating as a Post Office. Mail deliveries in the area will continue as normal.

While the Postal Service is sensitive to the impact of this decision on its customers and the community, the Postal Service properly considered community input and this decision is consistent with Postal Service objectives.

The Postal Service generally receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
