Pine Bluff-based Simmons Bank broke ground Sept. 21 on a new branch in Jonesboro located on Caraway Road. Construction on the 20,000-square-foot branch is underway with the branch projected to be completed in late 2024.

The cost of the project was not released.

“With the addition of the new financial center in Jonesboro, Simmons Bank is continuing to deepen our commitment to Northeast Arkansas,” said Kent Bridger, regional community president for Simmons Bank.

“In addition to added convenience, the upgraded facility will also enable us to provide broader access to the products and services our customers’ desire to meet their evolving financial needs,” he added.

The new, full-service location will provide a three-lane drive-thru access as well as an ATM with deposit capabilities. The branch will have mortgage and business loan capabilities and provide personal and business financial services.

Architecturally, the financial center is one of the first prototypes for Simmons Bank that will be used to remodel existing branches and build new financial centers across the company’s six-state footprint in the future.
