City crews spent the day working with people to gather their belongings and move them into transitional housing in three locations.

About two weeks ago, more than 40 people were cleared out of a camp near Santa Fe, south of Ventura under the 41 overpass.

Crews started cleaning up Golden State from Monterey Street bridge to E Street. They will also clear out Santa Clara from E Street to G Street, and F Street from Ventura to Santa Clara.

City officials say they're working to find homes for those who were evicted in the last clean-up.
