The U.S. Postal Service is shutting down nearly 40% of its processing centers around the country this year. A center in Rock Springs is scheduled to be closed, leaving just two of these facilities in Wyoming.

Post Service spokesman for Wyoming, David Rupert says the U.S.P.S. is ceasing overnight local letter delivery as well. But Rupert says most postal customers won’t notice these changes.

We're not talking about post offices. So the flag out front and the retail clerks and the operations there, none of that is going to change.

"We’re not talking about post offices. So the flag out front and the retail clerks and the operations there, none of that is going to change," says Rupert. "It’s what happens in the back and those are the things that we’re changing and its thing that most people don’t think about. It’s how the mail moves after it gets put in that collection box, that’s how we’re changing things."

The mail processed in Rock Springs will instead go to Salt Lake City.
