The Chelmer Viaduct crossed the River Chelmer on the A138 in Chelmsford, Essex. It was opened in 1932 by Edward, Prince of Wales, who later became King Edward VIII.

The bridge was an ornate concrete bridge, with concrete vertical pillars and guard barriers. It was superseded by the Replacement Chelmer Viaduct in 2016 and subsequently demolished.
