PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The U.S. Postal Service has suspended mail delivery and will keep post offices closed in all six New England states because of the blizzard that has dumped more than 2 feet of snow throughout the region.

Postal Service spokeswoman Christine Dugas says post offices in Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island will remain closed Saturday.

She says it's an unusual move, but roads across much of New England have been closed or are impassable.

Dugas says safety is the primary concern.

The postal service is also asking customers to make sure to clear snow from their walks and around the mailboxes before Monday, when service is scheduled to resume.

The postal service announced this week that it would stop Saturday mail delivery for good later this year.
