Lee County, GA (WALB) –  The new Heritage Bank branch in Lee County is starting to take shape, and while there isn't any money in the bank yet, they'll soon have a vault.

Local contractors started welding the six-inch-thick reinforced steel plates together to make the vault Wednesday afternoon. The vault will be 26 feet by eleven feet and should be completed by Friday.

This branch with be Heritage Bank's 17th branch, and most banks begin with the vault first.

"It's actually kind of interesting that the vault is the first thing that goes up after you lay the concrete, it's steel enforced and it's the first thing we build in terms of building a new branch," Mary Beth Hobby, Heritage Bank V.P. of Marketing.

The new branch will be 10,000 square feet and include three drive thru lanes. It's an estimated two million dollar construction project and the new branch should open in April of 2011.
