At their meeting this week a Planning Board member mentioned hearing that contractors have begun to fit out the future home of the Bedford Post Office. The designated space is next to Bruegger’s at the Bedford Marketplace.
The Bedford Citizen checked with code enforcement director Chris Laskey and learned, “The building permit to fit out the Post Office space was issued on December 1, 2016. Work is progressing in the space and some rough inspections have been performed.”
Stephen J. Doherty of the US Postal Service confirmed, “[The construction] is progressing well and we’re eagerly awaiting the opportunity to celebrate our grand re-opening with the town.”
Earlier today, workmen were busy in the space but the opening date has not been released.
