ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Deering Road in northwest Atlanta has been shut down to all traffic at the intersection of Peachtree Street. 

The closure is expected to last six months. 

Deering Road is considered a major cut-through road between Northside Drive and Peachtree Street. It's also where the Amtrak station is located, but the bridge that the station sits on is falling apart and needs to be reconstructed. 

Jill Goldberg with the Georgia Department of Transportation said the contractor was able to shave some time off the total project timeline by producing some of the elements for repairs in advance.

Drivers can detour the closure using Collier Road or 17th Street in Atlantic Station.
