IT’S BACK: Drive-up/ride-up mailbox returns to Westwood Village post office

9:25 AM: Thanks to Josh for the tip! We just confirmed via a trip to the Westwood Village post office that its drive-up/ride-up mailbox is being reinstalled, almost four months after removal last December. The removal came more than a week after it had been taped off, with a handwritten sign declaring it “broken and unsecure.” Its last removal, in 2015, also lasted about four months. As you can see in our photo, it’s just arrived, so don’t go rushing off to use it just yet.

10:36 AM: Just went back to the post office to check; the mailbox is operational.

    I hope they’ve already ordered another one, since it’s only a matter of time before they’ll need it at Westwood or in the Junction.

    This is good news! Hoping this one won’t be damaged. Must admit, I’m curious why it takes 4 months each time to replace it.

    Can they build them out of 1″ armor plating next time?

    So happy to hear this news!

    I agree with KBEAR.  They should order another one to have on hand locally.  It is almost a certainty that there will be another incident at some point that requires it to be replaced.

    It is kind of crazy that it takes 4 months to get another one.

    So happy to hear this. My 95 year Grandma has complained about this. A lot times the handicapped space is all taken up and she has a hard time getting around with a cane. I just told her that theres a new mail box and she is really happy about that.

    How long before this one blows up?

Sorry, comment time is over.
