Overnight rain caused some streets to flood, impacting morning commutes for drivers on Monday.

Drivers taking MLK Jr. Drive near East Boulevard and St. Clair Avenue used the sidewalk to get through the high waters.

Commuters can use Liberty Avenue to E. 88th Street as an alternative route.

Rainwater spilled over onto I-90 westbound under Prospect Avenue, causing flooding.

High water on I-90 westbound between Prospect Avenue and I-77 causes the right lane to be closed.
