He had been down about 45 minutes when he was discovered by Avila, who works in the Public Works Dept. “It’s not everyday you run into a hero,” Branum told the council.

Shortly after noon, the southbound lanes were opened south of Bailey Ranch Road.

"Our goal was to have this open by the time school opened, and we are pleased about that," said Joel Kertok, project coordinator with the Parker County judge's office. Classes begin Monday.

There will be work along the roadways continuing for a few weeks, such as landscaping and sidewalks, which could result in some temporary lane closures, he said.
