Traffic was backed up along the Tri-State Tollway Monday due to the closure of Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois.

Six Flags Great America was closed Monday morning because of the power outage. The park did not sustain structural damage in the storm.

Cars were turned away from the entrance, causing a major backup on Interstate 94.

Great America hopes to reopen Tuesday.
