Question What is the best possible microphone to use when filming next to heavy traffic?

I'm filming a video in a park parking lot, and there's a busy street about 30-50 feet away from where we're filming. There's also loud trucks passing by at times. Our back's would mostly be facing the traffic, so what would be the best microphone to use in this situation? A shotgun mic? Lavaliere? The video is mostly going to feature a host speaking to the camera, so a handheld mic is also an option, but I would prefer if he wasn't holding a mic. I'm definitely going to be hiring a pro audio guy to take care of all the audio, but I'd prefer to know as much as possible.

Thanks
