A viaduct is a bridge composed of several small spans for crossing a valley or a gorge. The term viaduct is derived from the Latin via for road and ducere, to lead.

Like the Roman aqueducts, many early viaducts comprised a series of arches of roughly equal length. Viaducts may span land or water or both.
