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]
