The Waldvogel Viaduct, also called the Waldvogel Memorial Viaduct, is a bridge-like construction on the west side of Cincinnati, Ohio, United States, connecting the Sixth Street Expressway with River Road (U.S. 50), Elberon Avenue and Warsaw Avenue. The section of Cincinnati is known as Lower Price Hill.

This viaduct was built to manage automobile traffic and avoid intersecting railroad lines, in order that grade crossings would not be required when the Cincinnati Union Terminal was constructed in 1933. The viaduct was named the Waldvogel Memorial Viaduct after the death of Edward N. Waldvogel (1894-1954), a member of the Ohio senate and mayor of Cincinnati who died in office.

The deteriorating viaduct is scheduled to be demolished in late 2012.[1]
