One of the two Minneapolis post offices destroyed in the May riots will be rebuilt.
The U.S. Post Office Services announced Thursday that it will rebuild the Minnehaha Post Office at its same location, 3033 27th Ave. S., where it has been since 1970.
The building was destroyed in the rioting that followed George Floyd's death during his arrest by Minneapolis Police Department. Another south Minneapolis post office, at 110 East 31st Street, was also destroyed.
The USPS says it's not providing a construction timeline for when the Minnehaha facility will be rebuilt, but when it's done, it will "provide a full-service retail and house local mail delivery operations."
The Minnehaha Post Office is located around the corner from the Minneapolis 3rd Police Precinct, where much of the damage to buildings was centered on the first few nights of the civil unrest that followed Floyd's death.
Until it is rebuilt, service will continue to be provided in the area of the former K-Mart store at 10 West Lake Street.
The USPS has also said it plans to replace the 31st Street branch, though there has been no official announcement for that project.
USPS said the Minnehaha and 31st Street buildings sustained "unrepairable damages" in the riots.
