4k still running hot!!

Here's the problem. My 86 4kq has been running hot when in traffic.
I first rebuilt the radiator. That helped a bit but did not solve the
problem. Second, attempted to replace the water pump. Upon
investigation of pump I found that the bearings are fine so I feel that
isn't my problem. Next, attacked the thermoswitch. I did find that it
had shorted out and then fixed it (which help a bit) but the car still runs
hot in traffic. On the highway the car runs at a good running temp. I
am now baffled. Does anyone have any idea of what might be my problem?
PS...happy cinqo de mayo!!!!!!
