The Chesapeake and Ohio Railway was one of several rail lines that were routed through Charlottesville in the 19th century. [citation needed]

Assets in Charlottesville are now owned by the CSX Transportation.

History

The railroad provided a barrier between the northern and southern sides of Charlottesville.

In 1933, a plan to widen the 4th Street underpass underneath the railway was discussed by city and railway officials. On August 9, 1933, City Manager Seth Burnley decided to defer work to widen the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway railroad underpass on 4th Street to 22 feet wide. After a morning conference with railroad officials, the $21,000 expense was deemed to be too much. [1]
