UPDATED 7.10PM: A38 northbound still closed between Burton and Barton-under-Needwood
The A38 has now reopened southbound after it was closed in both directions yesterday due to the River Dove bursting its banks.
The road is still shut between Branston Road junction near Burton and the Barton-under-Needwood turn off northbound.
The Highways Agency has confirmed that work is starting to reopen the northbound carriageway but could not confirm when this would be completed.
Police are warning motorists that flooding is still causing severe traffic congestion in places.
Severe rush-hour traffic congestion has been caused in surrounding areas including in Burton as a result of the closures.
Motorists are warned to avoid the area unless travel is absolutely necessary.
