Stavanger City Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge. The bridge has only one tower and it was one of the first larger cable-stayed bridge in Norway when it opened on 31 January 1978. The bridge crosses the Straumsteinsundet strait connecting the city center of Stavanger to the small islands of Grasholmen and Sølyst. The bridge is 1067 metres long, the main span is 185 metres, and the maximum clearance to the sea is 26 metres. The bridge has 24 spans.
