England cricket fans heading to Chester-le-Street's Riverside were warned that heavy rainfall forced the closure of several car parks.
Bad light forced an early close of play on Saturday
Police urged anyone planning to drive to the venue for the fourth Test against the West Indies on Sunday to use a local Park and Ride service.
Several grass car parks at the Riverside were waterlogged.
The Park and Ride runs from the A691 at Durham County Hall. Motorists could also use Chester-le-Street town centre.
The advice was a bid to reduce chances of traffic congestion at the venue.
Bad weather at the Riverside caused the umpires to abandon play on Friday without a ball being bowled.
Play finally got under way on Saturday afternoon until bad light forced an early close.
England have already won the series after a victory at Old Trafford on Monday.
