The Moerdijk bridges in the Netherlands are bridges that connect the Island of Dordrecht with the Dutch province of North Brabant (Noord Brabant) across the Hollands Diep. The first bridge was built at the end of the 19th century, and was a railway bridge. The second bridge was built in the 1930s for road traffic, and is currently part of the A16 motorway. This bridge was replaced in 1978 by a more modern, wider bridge. A second railroad bridge was finished in 2006, as part of the HSL-Zuid project.

De Moerdijk en de Moerdijkbrug zijn een begrip voor Nederland. Wie kent niet de uitdrukking “boven of onder de Moerdijk”. De uitdrukking boven/beneden de Moerdijk is ongeveer synoniem aan boven/beneden de grote rivieren en houdt verband met het feit dat Moerdijk vanouds de locatie was waar de belangrijke noord-zuidverbinding van Zuid-Holland naar Noord-Brabant het Hollandsch Diep overstak. Het insinueert ook een verschil in “gedrag”, “cultuur” of “mentaliteit” boven en onder deze fyisische grens.
