Queensborough Bridge is a highway bridge in New Westminster, British Columbia. It was built in 1960 by the City of New Westminster, costing $4 million. The bridge spans the north arm of the Fraser River for road access to the suburb of Queensborough at the east end of Lulu Island.

It has since become a part of Highway 91A feeder to Highway 91 to the south. Queensborough was a toll bridge until bought by the provincial government in November 1966.
