The Cape Fear Memorial Bridge is a steel vertical-lift bridge in North Carolina. It carries US 17 Business/US 76/US 421 across the Cape Fear River between Brunswick County and New Hanover County.

It is currently the highest bridge in North Carolina and features a lift span that can be raised 135 feet (41 m). The lift span is 408 feet (124 m) long.
