Description

Borgarfjarðarbrú (Icelandic pronunciation: ​[ˈpɔrkarˌfjarðarˌpruː], "Borgarfjörður bridge") is the second longest bridge in Iceland, after Skeiðarárbrú. It crosses Borgarfjörður, linking Borgarnes to Route 1 (the Ring Road) and connecting the town with other parts of Iceland. It spans 520 m and was opened on 13 September 1981, with repairs being done in 2012. Before the bridge was opened, the Ring Road crossed the Hvítá river 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) upstream of its mouth into Borgarfjörður at the bridge at Ferjukot opened in 1928.
