On June 30, 2021, CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSXT) filed a petition under 49 U.S.C. 10502 for exemption from the prior approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. 10903 to abandon an approximately 2,262-foot rail line between milepost Val Sta. 2403+77 and milepost Val Sta. 2426+39 on its Nashville Division, Nashville Terminal Subdivision, in Davidson County, Tenn. (the Line). The Line traverses U.S. Postal Service Zip Code 37207. According to CSXT, in the last two years, there were two shippers on the Line, Cherokee Marine Terminals and Kenwal Steel Corporation. (Pet. 3.) CSXT states that the property on which both shippers were located has been purchased by Monroe Infrastructure, LLC (Monroe), (id.), that both shippers are no longer located on the Line, (id. at 5), and that there are no current customers on the Line, (id.). Moreover, CSXT represents that Monroe intends to redevelop the land adjacent to the Line for non-rail purposes—specifically retail, residential, and office space—and that the City has rezoned the adjacent land for residential and commercial use. (Id. at 4–5.) Thus, CSXT asserts, there are no prospects for future shippers on the Line. (Id. at 5.) CSXT seeks to abandon its interest in the Line and sell the property to Monroe to facilitate the redevelopment of the adjacent property. (Id. at 4.) CSXT states that, based on the information in its possession, the Line does not contain federally granted rights-of-way.

    According to CSXT, in the last two years, there were two shippers 
on the Line, Cherokee Marine Terminals and Kenwal Steel Corporation.

adjacent to the Line for non-rail purposes--specifically retail, 
residential, and office space--and that the City has rezoned the 
adjacent land for residential and commercial use. (Id. at 4-5.) Thus, 
CSXT asserts, there are no prospects for future shippers on the Line. 
(Id. at 5.) CSXT seeks to abandon its interest in the Line and sell the 
property to Monroe to facilitate the redevelopment of the adjacent 
property. (Id. at 4.)
    CSXT states that, based on the information in its possession, the 
Line does not contain federally granted rights-of-way. Any 
documentation in CSXT's possession will be made available promptly to 
those requesting it.
