Long Description:
Aggersundbroen, en 210 m lang lavbro med et oplukkeligt midterfag konstrueret som et dobbelt klapfag med spændvidde på 30 m. Herudover består broen af to faste buefag i beton, hver med en spændvidde på 90 m. Broen blev indviet 18. juni 1942.

Under den tyske besættelse af Danmark fik broen strategisk betydning for tyskernes transporter af mandskab og materiel til og fra Norge. Derfor blev der i 1943-44 anlagt et militært støttepunkt omkring den bestående af 11 betonanlæg på nordsiden og 6 på sydsiden.

Der kørte ca. 6000 køretøjer over Aggersundbroen hvert døgn i 2002.
