The Weeks Footbridge, Charles River, Cambridge, MA
The John W. Weeks Bridge, usually called The Weeks Footbridge (or simply Weeks Bridge), is a pedestrian bridge over the Charles River connecting Cambridge, Massachusetts with the Allston section of Boston. John W. Weeks was a longtime U.S. Representative, and later Senator, from Massachusetts, as well as Secretary of War in the Harding and Coolidge administrations. It was opened in 1927 to carry pedestrian traffic between the Harvard Business School's newly-built Allston campus and the Business School's former home, Harvard's traditional campus in Cambridge. Its concrete underbelly conceals tentacles of the University's steam, electrical, and communications networks.
