    I know it won’t be open for a couple of years, but will police patrol the flyover at night to prevent the same types of robberies that have occurred on the 606? The narrow path with no exits will make users vulnerable to attack.

    Good question. I know that the residents of Lake Point Tower were concerned about the possibility of people using the flyover to access their building, so I’m guessing there will be good lighting and security cameras on the trail (as well as fencing that makes it pretty much impossible to get to the tower.)
