Monroe Ave. Branch Renovation Nearly Complete

Historic "BANK" Sign To Be Refurbished And Reinstalled by Spring

Alexandria, VA – Burke & Herbert Bank is pleased to announce that renovation work is nearing completion on its Monroe Avenue branch in Alexandria’s DelRay neighborhood. The branch, which originally opened its doors for business on February 11, 1954, now features a new, open branch lobby, approachable teller line and expanded customer service area. A special "History Wall" in the lobby showcases the branch’s earlier look. Outside, the renovation includes refreshed exterior signage, and an advanced touch screen Walk Up ATM.

The Bank has retained its popular Drive Up Teller Window so customers can do their everyday banking from the comfort of their cars – from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 pm on Saturdays. Also coming soon is an additional drive-up lane with a state-of-the-art ATM so customers can get cash, transfer funds, make deposits and more, 24/7.

The familiar "BANK" sign that sits high atop the branch has suffered significant weathering and weakening, and will be refurbished. Rounding out its "facelift" in the coming weeks, the Bank will take down the "BANK" sign for approximately four weeks so that it can be restored to its original glory.

All work is expected to be completed by early spring, at which time the Bank plans to host an Open House Celebration for its neighbors and customers in Del Ray.
