The U.S. Postal Service has changed its mind about closing the Main Post Office at I-30 and Sylvan in Dallas.

The Postal Service had said it would move Dallas mail distribution and processing to Fort Worth.

Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins says the consequences of that cost-cutting move were unacceptable.

Jenkins: "That would have resulted in ultimately the loss of over a thousand jobs. And of equal importance, it would have resulted in slow downs in our mail and hardships on everyone who uses the Post Office."
