As the Ohio river continues to rise, city workers have placed warning signs at the boat ramp and pier at Harris Riverfront Park.

Drivers should use caution in the areas especially at night as high water continues to cover areas of the park and amphitheater.

The river is supposed to crest on Saturday.
