Lysefjord Bridge Norwegian: Lysefjordbrua is a suspension bridge over the Lysefjorden in the municipality of Forsand in Rogaland county, Norway. Construction on the 639-metre (2,096 ft) long bridge began in 1995 and was finished in 1997 at a cost of NOK 150 million.
The bridge carries Norwegian county road 13, connecting to Norwegian National Road 13 on the north end. Its main span is 446 metres (1,463 ft), the depth of the deck is 2.7 metres (8 ft 10 in), and the width of the bridge is 12.3 metres (40 ft). The supporting towers are 102 metres (335 ft) tall, and are made of reinforced concrete. The bridge sits about 50 metres (160 ft) above sea level, leaving enough room for the regular ferry service that runs under the bridge to the village of Lysebotn, located at the other end of the long, narrow fjord.
