The John W. Weeks Footbridge spans the Charles River, connecting the Harvard Business School in Boston’s Allston neighborhood with Harvard’s main campus in Cambridge.  The bridge, built in 1926, carries the university’s utilities and pedestrian traffic.  As part of an on-call term contract with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and with additional design funding provided by Harvard University, SGH worked on a two-phase project to repair and upgrade the bridge.
