The No. 2 Road Bridge is a low-level four-lane bridge in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. It connects Sea Island, where the Vancouver International Airport is located, to the west part of Richmond on Lulu Island. For west Richmond residents who drive to work in Vancouver, this bridge is the route of choice, replacing the role held previously by the Dinsmore Bridge.

The bridge's span starts as No. 2 Road on Lulu Island and turns into Russ Baker Way on Sea Island. The site of the speed-skating oval for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, the Richmond Olympic Oval, is located at the southern foot of the bridge, to the east.
