'We gathered today to celebrate a construction project connecting Avery Ranch Road and Hwy 45 – with no toll booths! The initial stretch from Avery Ranch to Neenah Ave was constructed by the Round Rock Independent School District. This final portion was completed using Williamson County Road Bonds graciously approved in 2006 and 2013 by our voting taxpayers. The portion constructed by Round Rock ISD runs from Avery Ranch to the bus operations center."

MOT trains people to use Narcan in an emergency and helps them obtain it from local pharmacies, MOT, or from the TONI project.  

Against backdrops of purple — a color symbolizing hope — the photographs stood as mute testimony to lives cut short.

In them: A 40-year-old man held his daughter, maybe age 2, with a hand pressed to her father’s chest and a flower in her hair. A 29-year old woman faced away from a sunset and smiled. A 31-year-old man played acoustic guitar, his wind-blown hair tossed about.

None of those people will ever do any of those things again. They are among the Williamson County residents who have died from drug overdoses this year. They looked on, frozen in time, and those who loved them looked back in memory, as Williamson County hosted its second-annual Overdose Awareness Day program.
