If that piece were aluminum a machinist would say “no problem, I’ll just put it on the milling machine and mill that slot out” I think you can do the same thing with a straight router bit, you just need to jig something up on the router table that will enable you to hold the round piece securely and will have stop blocks on the fence that will limit how far side to side the piece can move. Forgive my not-to-scale drawing below but it will get the point across I think. Make the workpiece holder out of stock thick enough that it won’t be cut all the way through when you do the operation. In other words, the stock will be thicker than the height of the bit
