The Clear Creek Bridge is a Bailey Bridge. A Bailey Bridge is a "portable" bridge primarily used by the military due to the fact that it can be constructed and taken down in a very short amount of time. The truss sections of a Bailey Bridge are modular and can be put together and come apart kind of like "Lego" blocks.
