Both are fine
Hello Vincent Teo and Feebs:),

The traffic is heavy means that the road is busy, doesn't it?
Then, would it be possible is you say "There is always a rush hour at this time of the day"?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, but 'rush hour' implies that it's at the same time of day every day, and is usually understood as being roughly from 8-9 in the morning and from 5-6 in the evening, so it's a bit redundant. How about - "The traffic's always this heavy in the rush hour".
Hello Lil' Ruby Rose:),
"The traffic's always this heavy in the rush hour".
..if there is a rush hour, doesn't it mean the traffic is heavy? Does that heavy emphasize the how heavy the traffic is?

Thank you!
Yes - it would be indicating that there is even more traffic than one might expect for the rush hour.

"I just counted twenty lorries and ten caravans passing the window - is the circus coming to town?"

"No, the traffic's always this heavy in the rush hour".
