Following is an update from the Fire Brigade on U.S. mail delivery into and out of Big Sur.
Until further notice, there will be no U.S. mail delivery or pick up SOUTH of the Pfeiffer Bridge. The post office is closed for business, but any mail that may currently be in a PO Box may be picked up there.
Mail for those SOUTH of the bridge may now be picked up at the Monterey post office. Andrew and Eric will be based there and the post office phone (667-2305) will be forwarded and answered in Monterey.
If it is possible to get a van across the bridge tomorrow, packages currently in the post office will be moved to Monterey.
Normal mail deliveries will be made NORTH of the bridge.
Outgoing mail may be deposited in the blue mail box at River Inn (outside the general store) or may be placed in the outgoing mail slot at the bottom of Pfeiffer Ridge. Do not put any outgoing mail in the slot inside the post office or in the blue box at the post office.
There will be no pedestrian crossing on the bridge during periods of rain. Rain is forecast to begin Wednesday evening, so if you can, pick up whatever mail may be in the post office before then.
Every effort will be made to deliver mail on the South Coast depending on road conditions along Highway 1 and Nacimiento – Fergusson Road.
On another note, the Deli next to the post office will try to remain open as long as possible during the day for those who can walk there or drive from south of the Deli.

Will all PO Boxes be moved to Monterey post office?
All mail for all boxes will be moved to Monterey during the duration of the bridge collapse.
Pacific Valley School Superintendent, Gordon Piffero, will be picking up the mail for anyone @ Lucia, Pacific Valley, Gorda, Gorda Mtn & nooks and crannies in between, as long as they give him permission. This can be done via email or phone call (805) 927-4507. He’s leaving the school today (Weds) @ 3 pm if anyone wants to give that permission. He’ll be returning (if able) on Tuesday and all the mail will be at the school for pick up. We will try to deliver Lucia’s mail to Lucia, as long as the bus is able to make it. Please let people you know re: this.
We have cleared this with Postmaster Andrew. One more item: for all you shoppers online (with any company) now is a good time to exercise your New Year’s Resolution to stop doing that! The annexed BS PO cannot hold all your items, as the space is very limited. Gordon’s truck will only have so much room, as well.
Thanks for your consideration.
