Time Lapse: Flooding on Lake Shore Drive
High waves from Lake Michigan caused flooding on northbound Lake Shore Drive.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Watch high waves from Lake Michigan cause flooding in the northbound lanes of Lake Shore Drive between North Ave and Division St.

Cars are moving slowly through the area from 1200 to 1500 North LSD, but were in a single-file line as waves crashed around the three lanes closest to the water. Emergency crews and trucks are blocking the lanes to traffic while they work to remove water off the road, city officials said.

The lakefront path is also closed.
