Western Hills Viaduct photograph
Description: Cincinnati's largest viaduct at 3,500 feet long, the Western Hills Viaduct crosses the Mill Creek Valley in Cincinnati, joining eastern Spring Grove Avenue and Central Parkway with western Queen City and Harrison Avenues. Built from 1930 to 1932 as part of the Union Terminal project, the viaduct has arch spans at each end, spanning Spring Grove Ave to the east and Mill Creek to the west. In the center section, the viaduct spans the CSX Queensgate yard. The double deck viaduct originally had four traffic lanes on each 40 foot deck. The structure has undergone changes since it was first built, the most dramatic in 1960 when the eastern portion of the viaduct was removed for construction of I-75 underneath and rebuilt with interchange access to the interstate.
