Andøy Bridge

Andøy Bridge (Andøybrua) is a cantilever road bridge that crosses Risøysundet between Andøya and Hinnøya in Nordland county in Norway. The bridge is 750 metres long, the main span is 110 metres, and the maximum clearing to the sea is 30 metres. The bridge has 21 spans.

Andøy Bridge was opened in 1974. It was one of 4 bridges that were built in the 1970s to connect the islands of Vesterålen to each other. The other bridges that were built during that period are Hadsel Bridge, Sortland Bridge and Kvalsaukan Bridge. Together with Tjeldsund Bridge near Harstad these bridges connect the islands of Vesterålen to the mainland.

Andøy Bridge was a toll bridge for many years after its opening.
