The Bedford Bypass (Trunk 33 for 511 service) is a highway in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia.

The Bedford Bypass is the name given to a 3.5 km (2.2 mi) long 4-lane highway connecting Windmill Road (Trunk 7) in Dartmouth to Exit 1 of Highway 101 in the Lower Sackville area of the Halifax Regional Municipality.

The highway is not visibly assigned with a route number; however, it is reportedly assigned Trunk 33 by the provincial transportation department.[citation needed] Many maps incorrectly show it as an eastern continuation of Highway 101.

The road was built in 1977 to connect the eastern end of Highway 101 and to accommodate nearby truck (mainly B-Train) traffic from the nearby Burnside Industrial Park, relieving traffic from the center of the former town of Bedford and the steep hill entering the town. The posted speed limit is 90 km/h (55 mph).
