In Baltimore, I-95 approaching the toll plaza at the Fort McHenry Tunnel runs over the Canton Viaduct, part of I-895 (Baltimore Harbor Tunnel Thruway), which in turn runs over a few streets and a large railroad yard.

I-95 above the Canton Viaduct

I-895 crossing the Canton Viaduct under I-95 (note that as I write this, the northbound lanes of the Canton Viaduct have been demolished and work has started to build a new structure - when it is ready, two lanes of traffic (one lane each way) will be moved to the new structure and the old southbound bridge will be demolished and replaced - GSV drove through here a month or two before the northbound lanes were closed and one lane was moved to the southbound side).

Ponca Street where it passes below I-895 and I-95

Not exactly underneath -- it's offset a few feet -- but CT 67 has a "vertical overlap" under a segment of CT 8 freeway in Seymour: https://goo.gl/maps/xerfxAh1cXbfVTGy7. Look for the railway going over CT 67 and under CT 8.

Not sure if it will reopen, a one way road under the approach to the burlington bristol bridge in burlington NJ. They're doing work to the bridge so it is unusable for now at least.Not sure if it counts though, but...yeah it's a viaduct approach to the first over-river truss.

Cincinnati has some examples. East 3rd under US 50, West 8th under the 8th Street Viaduct, etc.

I think multistoried cities are going to have to be the wave of the future, simply because of the housing crisis.

I know in the past Pinoy Joyride showed that there were streets that run under the Manila Skyway and parts of South Luzon Expressway though.

Osmena Highway (formerly South Superhighway) is the surface street/boulevard that runs underneath the Skyway from just past EDSA to Quirino Avenue.  Prior to 2014 or so it was the only road running north of the Magallanes Interchange but the Skyway has gradually been built atop it, with the entire street now running underneath.

South of EDSA, the South Luzon Expressway runs underneath or adjacent to the Metro Manila Skyway between there and the Skyway's terminus near Alabang Town Center in Muntinlupa, with the service roads and Manila South Road as a frontage for those who cannot afford either of the aforementioned tollways.  I remember taking a Grab car ride from the Ortigas Center complex (specifically in Pasig) to Paranaque in late March and it struck me how many jeepneys were stuck at near-standstill pace along the east service road even at 1:30 AM.

Those are just a road being crossed by highway bridges—not "running" under viaducts.
