    What does a company that according to their website builds bridges and roads, “design and construction experience on every type of highway, bridge, tunnel and interchange”? Is the post office going into road construction now?? Their facility information is that they build. What is the post office building now that we don’t already have?? The USPS getting rid of buildings – selling them off. That is what our Real estate section should do! They also have a glorified way to describe “property Management” that doesn’t take 252Million a year to achieve. We have maintenance personnel that can handle that and again what the heck is our real estate department doing if not that? THis is why the USPS is going down. Waste of money. That should have been saved and used for marketing our products, getting our lobbies updated with rental spaces so we can add more reasons to stop at the PO! We should have office services we should be a Wifi spot. But no lets spend money on maybe a contractor that can build new roads for the USPS only to travel. What a good idea!!!!!! PS make sure they only go in one direction and be able to turn RIGHT!!!!
