MEDFORD, Ore. — With only days left before Christmas, mail carriers are hard at work making sure packages will be delivered in time. The delays with Interstae 5 left some delivery trucks running behind schedule and caused the United State Postal Service to make the decision to deliver packages on Sunday, something some carriers say they have never seen.
“The good thing is they actually have somebody delivering tomorrow, Sunday so there’s going to be people out delivering on Sunday which we just don’t do,” said mail carrier Socorro Vega.
USPS will also be delivering packages on Christmas Eve. Mail carriers say the amount of letters have picked up over the past few weeks and as expected, the number of packages in their trucks has seen a sharp increase.
