91 Honda Civic Wagon overheats in traffic

Hi.... I've got a 91 Honda Civic wagon 1.5L with over 200000 miles on it. Lately when I am stuck in traffic the car overheats. A few weeks ago I could turn on the heat and the temperature would drop, last weekend it did not drop. I have a new radiator and some new hoses. The fan is working. The mechanics think the thermostat is ok. Could it be something other than the head gasket?
thanks

Forgot, when it overheats in traffic now the idle goes up to 3000rpms. This is a new addition to the overheat from a few weeks ago.
