New plans are underway for the construction of a new BancFirst building in Edmond. City planning commissioners have already approved the site plan, and in conjunction with the project, the city will also be replacing the old bridge along Bryant Avenue, where the new bank will be located.
BancFirst is the largest state-chartered bank in Oklahoma and the third largest bank in the state, behind Bank of Oklahoma and Midfirst Bank. It was first organized in 1989 when Chairman H.E. “Gene” Rainbolt merged twelve banks under one state charter.
Currently, the bank serves 119 locations throughout the state. Edmond residents will soon enjoy the benefits of BancFirst in a convenient location on east Bryant Avenue, north of Spring Creek Plaza shopping center. The building will be built on a 2.7-acre lot with a drive-thru, 56 parking spaces, and two bicycle racks.
It is to help ease traffic flow in the area that city officials also announced the bridge replacement Bryant Avenue, north of 15th Street. Officials said that the bridge will be in front of the new branch of BancFirst and they are hoping to rebuild it prior to the bank’s construction. Once the bridge project commences, it will be divided into phases, so one lane will be open for traffic at all times.
