Traffic on part of Interstate 405 came to a complete halt Monday morning as a family of fowl tried to make a waddle for it across the freeway.
The babies were on the northbound lanes of the highway just south of 112th Avenue Southeast in Newcastle, according to a 9:28 a.m. tweet from the Washington State Department of Transportation.
Video tweeted by WSDOT showed three people trying to herd the ducklings while Washington State Patrol troopers were on the way. Two used their coats in a bullfighter-type fashion.
The incident caused a backup, but about 10 minutes later, WSDOT tweeted that the duck family had been moved off the road onto the right shoulder, the work area was open, and traffic was moving normally again.
