JACKMAN, Maine (WABI) - The Jackman road that was closed after a washout is back open.

The Jackman-Moose River Fire Department said that Maine D-O-T has confirmed Route 15 is now open.

Part of the road was closed after heavy rainfall caused a culvert to fail.

It’s forced a lengthy 143 mile detour for drivers who use state roads.

Maine D-O-T says nearly 800 vehicles use this section road in Jackman on an average day.
