FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — The Civic Center Fresno Post Office in downtown Fresno will close early on Saturday due to the potential for a “possible civil event,” the U.S. Postal Service announced Friday.

The post office, located at 855 M Street, Suite 190, across the street from the Fresno Convention Center, will close lobby access at 10 a.m, said spokeswoman Meiko S. Patton. The location will resume normal operations on Tuesday following the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday.

The Postal Service said a post office in downtown Sacramento will also close for the same reason.
