Post Offices Saved in Alaska are Unique

The removal of 25 of the 36 Post Offices in Alaska under consideration for closure should not give hope to other communities that they have a good chance of saving their Post Office.  As the Fairbanks News Minor reports, "the offices all have one thing in common: none of them are on the Alaska road system."

It is unlikely that there are many Post Offices that the Postal Service is considering closing in either Hawaii or the continental United States that are off the highway system.  Therefore, few communities will find saving their Post Office as easy as these 25 communities did in Alaska.
