Brønnøysund Bridge (Norwegian: Brønnøysundbrua) is a cantilevered road bridge near the town of Brønnøysund in Brønnøy municipality in Nordland county, Norway. The bridge was constructed in 1979 and it connects the small island of Torget with the mainland just south of Brønnøysund. The 550-metre (1,800 ft) long bridge has a maximum clearance to the sea of 30 metres (98 ft). It consists of 20 spans, the longest of which is 110 metres (360 ft). The bridge deck is made of pre-stressed concrete.[1][2]

The island of Torget is well known for the mountain Torghatten, which has a hole, or natural tunnel, straight through it.
