Construction is full steam ahead at 988 Washington St. in Franklinton, the site of a new location for Resource Bank.

In August of 2019, Resource Bank announced plans to move its Franklinton branch to the new site at the corner of Washington and Main Street.

The 2,150-square-foot building is on target for a fall 2020 completion. RHH Architects is the architectural firm and Voelkel McWilliams Construction is the construction company for the project.

Resource Bank has operated out of its current location, 950 10th Ave., since Sept. 4, 1998. After 22 years of providing banking and lending services in Franklinton, this build shows a continued commitment to the community. The main street location will provide convenient access for clients just around the corner from where they have been banking. The new branch will have dual drive-thru lanes, a private conference room, and a 24-hour ATM.

“We are excited to be moving into a new building. This is a great opportunity to be at a very visible location in town,” said Cindy Allen, branch manager.

Resource Bank plans to host a ribbon cutting that will be open to the public. An announcement regarding a date for that event will be released, post completion of the build.
