County Road 17 (Norwegian: Fylkesvei 17), also known as the Coastal Highway (Norwegian: Kystriksveien), is a Norwegian highway that runs from Bodø in Nordland county (in the north) to Steinkjer in Nord-Trøndelag county (in the south). It is 630 kilometers (390 mi) long and includes six ferry crossings. The road runs along the coast of Nordland and Nord-Trøndelag counties through 28 different municipalities. This road is much more scenic, albeit longer and more time-consuming, route than the inland European Route E6 highway. Before 1 January 2010, this was National Road 17 (Norwegian: Riksvei 17), but control and maintenance of the road were transferred to the counties from the national government on that date, so now it is a county road.
