The commissioners sent a letter on Sept. 29 to John Touchstone, director of the D.C. Department of Public Works, outlining the ANC's opposition to proposed construction of a one-way entrance driveway off Connecticut Avenue NW that would provide access to the First American Bank at 20 Chevy Chase Circle NW.

Traffic hazards around Chevy Chase Circle would be exacerbated by a continuous-use commercial/retail driveway immediately adjacent to the circle, according to the letter. The commissioners have suggested two alternatives to provide additional access to the bank: to have cars enter and exit the bank via the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) bus terminal next to the bank on Connecticut Avenue. to widen the public alley at the rear of the bank and have cars enter and exit there from Oliver Street.
