— -- Ah, the sea, the crashing surf ... the highway?

Drivers in the middle of Chicago Friday saw waves crashing where they're definitely not supposed to be, as high winds blew Lake Michigan's waters across the northbound lanes of Lake Shore Drive.

The crashing waves and flooding stretched from North Avenue to Division Street, according to ABC News station WLS, and prompted city officials to reduce available lanes on the road and advise drivers to go another way, according to local reports.

The whole thing was captured on video. Take a look above as the waves crash.
