The city's health department handed out fliers Monday evening warning the estimated 140 homeless people sleeping under the Pontchartrain Expressway that the area was a public

The next question for city officials became where to send them.

The three largest homeless shelters in New Orleans have a total of 181 beds available to house people from a few weeks to a year.
