Updated 5 years ago

A section of Pushaw Road in Bangor has been closed.The Maine Department of Transportation says heavy rains and rising waters of Great Brook have washed out the downstream side of a five-foot wide culvert on Pushaw Road. Traffic has been detoured onto Church Road, Essex Street and Orono Road. Trucks must use Routes 15 and Route 221 for a detour.A DOT spokesman says the stone culvert will be replaced with a steel pipe. Depending on weather, that work could take one to two weeks.
