Ducks on an Expressway

On my way in to work this morning, I got on the Eisenhower at Austin, and not even a half mile down the road, on the left shoulder, there was a mother duck and at least eight ducklings heading east! I have no idea how they got there… can ducklings even fly?

I thought about stopping and trying to gather them up and relocate them, but visions of duckings running into traffic and multi-car pile-ups stopped me. So my wife called 311 (to alert IDOT and Animal Care/Control). Any one else see them? What else can/should one do when you see something like that? I mean, other than blog about it.
