RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A Richmond post office has been closed since Friday due to a “mold issue.”

The post office located at 3004 North Avenue in Richmond closed after local officials became aware of the problem Friday.

The building is temporarily closed and a sign on the front door cites “environmental reasons.”

United States Postal Service information officer Michell Martel said that residents who have mail delivered from that location will not be impacted by the closing.

Martel did say that the closure will impact people with post office boxes at that location. For the time being, those with PO Boxes in the North Avenue location can pick up their mail at the Bellview Post Office.

The Bellview Post Office is located at 5327 Chamberlayne Avenue.

It is unclear at this time when the North Avenue location will reopen.Find 8News on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram; send your news tips to
