(Salt Lake City-AP) -- State Road 92 will remain closed until at least tomorrow. That's what the officials at the Department of Transportation say.

D-O-T spokesman Nile Easton says eleven small slides in American Fork Canyon forced the highway's closure from milepost seven to milepost 14 yesterday afternoon.

Avalanche crews will test various sections of the snowpack in the area and determine when to re-open the road.

None of the slides hit any cars and no one was hurt.
