Advantis CU to close branch in path of rail line
BROOKLYN, Ore. (5/5/11)--The Brooklyn, Ore.-branch of Advantis CU will close this summer to make way for a light-rail system. Advantis executives have been working with Portland, Ore.-area public transportation authority TriMet, which plans to widen the street where the branch is located for a rail line running from Portland to Milwaukie (The Bee May 4). The branch will close in early June. Most of the branch’s employees will be transferred to a new branch opening in Brooklyn later this summer. Advantis CU will maintain an ATM on the site after the branch closes. The building was once housed PGE CU, which merged with the Union Pacific CU--then called the Rose City of Oregon CU--and changed its name to Electra CU. After a merger with Pace CU in 2005, the site became an Advantis branch.
