QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

The Quincy Mail Processing and Distribution Center will sort its last piece of mail on Saturday.

U.S.P.S. spokesperson Valerie Welch says 27 workers still at the Quincy facility will continue to help with the transitioning process through the end of the month.

They will then be reassigned to other positions within the postal service.

Welch says mail with the Illinois 623 zip code prefixes is already being processed in Springfield.

Missouri zip codes 634 will be sent to St. Louis and 635 to Columbia.

Welch says there is no word yet on what the Quincy facility will be used for.

The U.S.P.S. is moving ahead with cost cutting plans to close more than 200 mail processing centers across the country.
