Grandin Road Viaduct

The Grandin Road Viaduct, also known as the Grandin Road Bridge or the Delta Avenue Viaduct was built in 1905 and was the highest in the city at 150 feet over Delta Avenue. The viaduct once connected Grandin Road in Hyde Park to Grandin Road in Mt. Lookout. The wood and steel structure underwent many repairs in its lifetime and in 1975, it was torn down due to concerns over the safety and stability of the bridge.

As a kid, maybe 10 or 11, I walked/climbed across the span under the roadway. I still remember the thrill, not the danger.

It's the first thing I honestly missed when I returned to Cincinnati as an adult many years later.
