The Monon Trail and other city greenways may soon be open to the public around the clock. 

Indy Parks Director John Williams says the Indy Parks Board is set to vote late Thursday on whether to open up the Monon, Fall Creek, White River and other trails 24/7 effective immediately.  Williams says the city's main greenway, the Monon, which runs from roughly 96th Street to Fall Creek & 30th Street, is currently open from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. 

Williams says Indianapolis is behind the curve when it comes to 24-hour operation of its greenways.  He says many cities have their trails open around the clock.  Williams adds that despite current operating hours, that doesn't stop folks from using the trails even with police handing out citations.  He says he doesn't expect additional public safety concerns if they approve expanded hours.
