AUSTIN (KXAN) – The place that processes mail in Austin is going to get a lot busier.

The U.S. Postal Service released new plans to close or consolidate 220 processing centers around the country. Waco, Bryan and Abilene are all on the chopping block.

That means all their mail will move through Austin.

The changes will save USPS more than $2 billion, but 35,000 people will lose their jobs.

The postal service is still considering closing 3,700 post offices in addition to the processing centers.
