SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Transportation officials say a section of Highway 1 through Sonoma County closed because of storm damage will remain closed indefinitely.

The roadway north of Jenner has been closed since Dec. 5 when one of several storms that hit the region moved through the area.

Caltrans officials initially had hoped to open the highway this week, but a Caltrans spokesman says the time estimated to do the repair work on the 500-foot section of roadway that was washed away was extended indefinitely after engineers determined the work would take longer than expected.

Cars and trucks using that section of Highway 1 are being routed around the mudslide on a detour of about six miles on local roads.
