Sanitation Cleans LA Side of 405 Underpass at Venice Blvd

Last week you read about the encampment under the 405 freeway on Venice Blvd.  Los Angeles jurisdiction side (north side) was packed with homeless;  Culver City jurisdiction side (south side) had none.

Today (Friday) the sidewalk at the underpass on the north side is closed.  Sanitation is there with the police.  The homeless on the north side are being told to move because Sanitation is cleaning the area.  Sanitation does not operate without at least a 72-hour notification.

Yolanda Gonzalez, who took the photos, said the people were trying to move to the south side but the police would not allow that.  Then they tried to move to the narrow median and the police would not allow that. One fellow settled across the street.

    Progress! Why can’t the city do this with all the bum encampments?? Of course, this just moves the bums somewhere else where they make a pest of themselves, but at least it forces one tiny patch of LA to be rid of feces for a day.
