Community Bank announced that in May it will expand its branch at 1125 Arsenal St. in Watertown, closing its neighboring location at 1218 Arsenal St. to consolidate operations.
The closure of the second location is expected in August, according to a news release from the bank. Employees at the closed location will be relocated to the remodeled branch or assigned to other area branches.
The improved branch will include an additional 1,200 square feet to accommodate four offices and an expanded meeting room. A third drive-up lane will be added, along with a walk-up ATM. The parking lot will be expanded, and the building will feature new signage, external siding and a pitched roof with an entrance tower. Hours at the branch lobby and drive-through will remain the same during the construction period.
