The Hakuchō Bridge (白鳥大橋 Hakuchō Ō-hashi?) is a suspension bridge in Muroran, Hokkaido, Japan. Opened April 17, 1998, it has a main span of 720 meters and is signed as part of Japan National Route 37. It is the first section of Hakuchō new road.
Several windmills line the bridge which provide lighting at night to the park golf link nearby. The winds are extremely high on the bridge, so pedestrians, bikes, and motorbikes are prohibited from crossing.
