The Patapat Viaduct is a viaduct at the municipality of Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte, a coastal resort town on the northernmost tip of Luzon Island in the Philippines.
It is a concrete coastal bridge elevated 31 meters above sea level and 1.3 km long and connects the Maharlika Highway from Laoag, Ilocos Norte to the Cagayan Valley Region. It rises along the town's coastal mountains, which is the starting point of the Cordillera Mountain Range that snakes through Northern Luzon. It is the 4th longest bridge in the Philippines. The longest being the San Juanico bridge which connects Leyte to Samar.
It is said that the viaduct was a project of Marcos during his regime. It was built to prevent accidents from happening since the original road was located above the Cordillera Mountains.
