I think this overpass is decently steep for Ontario (Moonstone Road over the 400)

"Steep" in the OP refers to the rise in elevation of an overpass, between one edge of the freeway and the other, not the steepness of the ramp leading up to the overpass.

The approach doesn't appear to be very steep either, anyway.

I always found this one interesting:

https://goo.gl/maps/Wpu1VZ5pa5v

The angles of each bridge make it that you can see the pavement of the bridge above the roadway. Kind of weird!

There's a somewhat similar situation with US 2 over I-89 in Vermont: https://goo.gl/maps/dc4ZgM8LC2N2

A lot of the bridges along the I-215 east belt and in the 80/215/Foothill interchange in Salt Lake are fairly steep, but I think this one wins: https://goo.gl/maps/ZK4fmYTBPDJ2 . Even from the bridge itself, you get a sense of how steep it is: https://goo.gl/maps/TxSxtho9uTM2

That's 4500 South (or 4430 South, depending on what sign you read, but people will look at you funny if you use 4430).

Hey, danthecatrafficlightfan, you should consider reading other posts in the topic before posting. Especially the ones about what "steep" means.

You guys should look from the other direction. The steepness is far more obvious: http://bit.ly/2XLUC6S

Judging by the lack of a clearance sign for northbound traffic, that side of the bridge must be at least a foot-and-a-half higher than the other side (which is 15', 5").

It's not the steepest on this thread, but it's steep for that area.
