Evicted from the Bridge

I found this to be a fascinating story:

Ruben Alexander Lopez removes belongings from a living space inside the Cabrillo Bridge in Balboa Park.
SAN DIEGO – A group of homeless people living within the Cabrillo Bridge in Balboa Park was ordered out by police and park rangers late Thursday morning.

If you've ever been to San Diego, you've probably seen the Cabrillo Bridge that spans the 63 freeway from Balboa Park. In fact, it might be our most recognizable landmark. What most people don't know is that the bridge supports are like buildings, with rooms and floors, etc. Local news reported that the people living in the bridge had plans to expand upward and turn the place into a sort of hotel. Not sure if that's true, but it makes a good story.
