Bjerringbro municipality ceased to exist as the result of Kommunalreformen ("The Municipality Reform" of 2007). It was merged with Fjends, Karup, Møldrup, Tjele, and Viborg municipalities to form an enlarged Viborg municipality. This created a municipality with an area of 1,390 km² and a total population of 88,945 (2005). The new municipality belongs to the Region Midtjylland ("Mid-Jutland Region").
