Main Treasury Building, Department of Treasury
15th Street, NW
Dear Mr. McGill:
In the meeting of 16 March, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed and approved the design for the installation of perimeter security bollards along the 15th Street frontage of the Main Treasury Building. The members supported the design intention to match as closely as possible the configuration of the existing bollards on 17th Street along the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. At the northeast corner, where it would not be feasible to match the 17th Street configuration, the Commission preferred the option to place a hardened granite bench in front of the Treasury fence to complete the barrier and protect the historic fence (as shown in the drawing labeled "North Corner Revision," received and dated 2 March 2006).
The Commission understands that this project will complete the protective barrier surrounding the White House Complex. If there are any additional revisions to the project, please submit them to the staff for the Commission's delegated approval.
