The Tulsa postal processing center is not slated to be closed until 2014 following word Thursday by U.S. Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe that they are moving ahead with plans to close dozens of mail processing centers this year.

Donahoe announced a modified plan to consolidate its mail processing locations in phases.

According to Dionne Montague, USPS spokesperson for the Oklahoma, there is no actual confirmed date for the closing of the Tulsa Postal Center, but there will be no action taken before January 2014.

The Tulsa facility is located at 21st and 91st East Avenue.

The agency will consolidate 140 mail processing centers within the next year, including 48 this August.

Most will occur next January and February, after the busy election and holiday mail season. Another 89 closings would occur in 2014.

The Postal Service had previously planned to close 252 mail processing centers beginning this summer but was awaiting congressional action.
