The Houtribdijk is a dike in the Netherlands, built between 1963 and 1975 as part of the Zuiderzee Works, which connects the cities of Lelystad and Enkhuizen. On the west side of the dike is the Markermeer and on the east is the IJsselmeer. The 27-kilometer-long dike was intended for the Markerwaard, but this polder is now unlikely to be constructed.
Parts of the dike are known as the Markerwaarddijk and the Lelydijk. It is also frequently called the "Enkhuizen–Lelystad dike" in traffic announcements, as if it had no official name.
