LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Heavy rains mean heavy traffic problems along River Road in downtown Louisville.

The road is closed from Third Street to Eighth Street because of flooding, and will likely remain closed for several more days.

The National Weather Service says the Ohio River will continue to rise until at least Friday.

With more rain in store for the weekend, river levels could continue to rise through early next week.
