Bath, N.H., January 26, 2010 - High water resulting from heavy rains and snow melt moved floating ice into the city and threatened the destruction of the Bath Covered Bridge.

The bridge was closed due to ice damage to its substructure, causing a problem for emergency services to the now divided town.

The 375-foot Bath Bridge was built in 1832 to cross the Ammonoosuc River in four spans using a modified Burr Truss.
