Earle Bridge

Earle Bridge

Built in the late 1930s, Earle Bridge is the footbridge over West Street. It was named for Rear Admiral Ralph Earle, WPI's sixth president, who presided over a campus expansion plan that resulted in Alden Memorial and Higgins Labs, among other campus landmarks. Students cross this bridge hundreds of times during their years at WPI, but the trip they remember most is the one they make, dressed in cap and gown, on Commencement Day, as they march to the Quad to receive their well-deserved degrees.
