LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Traffic was backed up on the southbound 101 Freeway Wednesday morning while authorities forced several transients to move from an encampment in the Cahuenga Pass.

The enforcement effort began about 7:20 a.m. near the Highland Avenue off-ramp, which was partially closed, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Francisco Villalobos.

One lane of the two-lane exit was closed during the enforcement effort, which caused significant delays.
