It has been mentioned around PBS that some of the distribution centers were being closed and books would be rerouted. Des Moines is one that will be picking up some of the extra traffic. I believe it is permanent. You may want to ask your clerk or carrier next time you see one of them.

THe post office is closing a lot of distribution centers and post office branches.  THey are closing the distribution center nearest to me but none of my local POS-probably becuase there is only 1 per town here.  The clerk said that they had been on a hiring freeze for sometime and that the employess of the distribution center would be distbursed among post offices that are short handed.

My clerk just told me about the routing.  She said they are trying to make it more efficient and we might see mail process quicker when it is all said and done.  Depending up on where it is going when I mail out now it is either Nasua NH or Springfield MA.  Same for inbound mail.

The Kansas City Ks plants are closing or changing what they process. "local" stuff gets sent to KcMo for processing--- local being Kcmo, Kcks SmKs, St Joe. Topeka, Wichita, etc etc. and All first class/priority gets sent to KcMo. Parcel Post/media mail that is for the rest of the country get sent to Des Moines now. That is a permanent change.
