Abstract:
A portable pipe bridge has an adjustable-length, horizontal truss for supporting one or more temporary pipelines above a roadway. The truss is supported on each end by a vertical column having foldable footings and a elevator section which lifts the truss to a desired height. One or more temporary pipes are placed across the truss and coupled to pipelines on either side of the roadway.

Each vertical column folds flat and fits onto the truss/trailer for relocation to a new site.
