Athol Seeks Return To Normal After Ice Jams

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.
