SALT LAKE CITY — The Postal Service said Friday it plans to take several measures to prepare for possible civil unrest as armed marchers are expected to rally Sunday at capitols across the country.

On Saturday, the Postal Service will close the Downtown Salt Lake City Post Office, 230 W. 200 South, at noon.

It will also temporarily remove four blue collection boxes in the downtown area to protect postal property, employees and the public.

The boxes that will be temporarily removed are located at 8 W. 100 South; 50 W. 200 South; and two at 4 S. Main.

Customers may find nearest collection boxes in service or post office locations on the Postal Service’s website at
