A stretch of Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach was closed Tuesday due to surging waves that flooded the roadway.

Caltrans closed PCH in both directions between Warner Avenue and Seapoint Street about 10:55 a.m., the agency said.

The high-tide surge caused the flooding, and Caltrans crews were working to mop up the water, which should take about a couple of hours, according to Jennifer Carey, a spokeswoman for the city.

Caltrans spokeswoman Elizabeth Manzo said it was unclear when the lanes could be reopened and that motorists were being detoured around the area without any major backup as of 1:30 p.m.
