Homeless camp allowed to stay at Chicago viaduct

CHICAGO (AP) — A group camping below a Chicago viaduct have received a reprieve from eviction, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

About 10 people have been camping in the Wilson Avenue viaduct at Lake Shore Drive, but last week members said Chicago Transportation workers told them they needed to leave. Notices also were posted that the tunnel was scheduled for cleaning Monday.

A Chicago Streets and Sanitation crew picked up trash and swept the viaduct Monday but allowed the group to keep using the tunnel for shelter, the newspaper reported.

”We get to stay for Christmas!” declared Tom Gordon, the camp’s so-called mayor.
