That depends upon what you consider a "viaduct" to be, where you come from.
That certainly looks like a "vie-dock" to me.

Have you ever seen Walden so-called "Pond" in Massachusetts? I was shocked,
shocked! to see the size of that thing.That "pond" is not much smaller than
Lake Michigan! If it were located anywhere that i've ever lived outside of
Massachusetts, that "pond" would be a fairly-large _lake_.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
