[Openstreetmap] viaducts

Welcome to OSM.

Currently when using the applet there is no way to distinguish between line
segments that are at different elevations. If the two line segments do not
meet (ie there is no physical connection in real life) then simply ensure
that there is no common node connecting them, simply let one line segment
cross over the other. Some time in the future it will be possible to set the
layer order in some way so that when a map is displayed it is clear which
line segment (eg street) passes over, or under another, rather than it being
a junction of these two streets.

Cheers, Andy
