 It's a problem that still won't go away. 

Flood waters still cover River Drives in Moline and Davenport. 

Now, business owners say these road closures are starting to effect the bottom line. 

Ed Kraklio is the co-owners of Fresh Deli, along the river in Davenport. 

With River Drive looking more like a ghost town these days, due to the road being closed, he says his business is dipping. 

"Clients who live in Bettendorf use River Drive as their life line to the downtown Davenport area," says Kraklio. "A lot of them don't want to go through the confusion of driving through the upper parts of Davenport. So they stay away from downtown."

Kraklio explains having this business location is a double edged sword. 

When the river cooperates, the views are amazing, bringing in people from all over. 

But, when the river comes over it's banks, it can cause the entire parking lot to flood, causing the business to close it's doors, which is what happened last week. 

"We deal with the beauty of our restaurant sitting upon this gorgeous river. But when Mother Nature decides to come out of it's banks and take over our parking lot, it does inconvenience our business quite a bit." 

But, at the end of the day, Kraklio say it's always worth it to have a business along the Mississippi.
