Andøy Bridge (Norwegian: Andøybrua) is a cantilever road bridge that crosses the Risøysundet strait between the islands of Andøya and Hinnøya in Nordland county, Norway. The northern end of the bridge is located in the village of Risøyhamn. The bridge is 750 metres (2,460 ft) long, the main span is 110 metres (360 ft), and the maximum clearance to the sea is 30 metres (98 ft). The bridge has 21 spans.
Andøy Bridge was opened in 1974. It was one of four 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.
