Illinois state police said the flooding continues to divert traffic on some highways.

Along Interstate 290, ramps to North Avenue in both directions and the westbound ramp to Lake Street remained closed. Interstate 94 is also closed from the split at Interstate 57 to 147th Street in both directions, officials said.

Southbound traffic on Interstate 55 is being diverted off at Interstate 80 because of flooding just north of Route 6, according to state police.

The DuPage County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management reported dozens of road closures, most of them in Wheaton, Oak Brook and Carol Stream.

On the positive side, the wet April month leaves last year’s drought a distant memory — and the state has almost completely recovered from the drought-like conditions, said Arlan Juhl, director of water resources for the state’s Department of Natural Resources.

“We had pretty much determined in March there were no surface water drought issues remaining in the state,” Juhl said. “There will be significant recovery to most ground water levels this month.”
