The Exchange Street Bridge in Athol is closed after suffering possible damage from an ice jam on Millers River.
The ice jam also caused the evacuation of a building at an apartment complex for seniors because of the possibility of flooding.
The bridge will remain closed until it can be inspected by state transportation officials, which will be tomorrow at the earliest.
The rain on Friday caused ice blocks on the river to break free, and a large one hit the bridge Saturday morning.
