City National Bank has broken ground on its new branch office at Jubal Early Drive and Valley Avenue in Winchester.
The branch is scheduled to open in the summer; it replace a branch on Weems Lane.
City National operates 20 branches along the Interstate 81 corridor between Martinsburg, W.Va., and Lexington — including Winchester, Stephens City, Strasburg, Front Royal and Woodstock.
The new Winchester branch will have a 5,700 square-foot office, three drive-through lanes and a drive-through automated teller machine.
“We are thrilled to be adding this important location in Winchester,” said Katrina Meade, regional manager for City National’s Northern Virginia markets. “This full-service facility, at the corner of two of the city’s most traveled streets, will give City excellent visibility — and our customers will enjoy increased access.”
