DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - The Northeast Expressway access road is closed as crews try to fix a sinkhole in the road.

Southbound lanes of the busy road are closed at the Dawson Boulevard Bridge.

The Wednesday morning commute was affected and the afternoon rush will be, too, while Atlanta Watershed crews looks for what caused the problem on the stretch of road.

Channel 2's Wendy Corona saw crews checking out the line, sending a camera down below to give a better view of what's happening underneath the street. But for now, the one thing that's certain with a sinkhole forming is a detour.

We'll keep monitoring progress and provide live updates on Channel 2 Action News at 4.
