A city worker Monday morning found a man dead in a grassy median between Emmett F. Lowry Expressway and a feeder road, police said. 

The body was found about 8:15 a.m. in the 4100 block of the expressway, between the two eastbound lanes.

Police have not determined a cause of death as of Monday afternoon, Police Department spokesman Cpl. Allen Bjerke said.

The man appears to be a Hispanic male, Bjerke said. His body showed no obvious signs of trauma, Bjerke said. The Galveston County Medical Examiners Office will determine a cause of death and attempt to identify the man in coming days, he said.

Eastbound traffic on the feeder road was blocked as police investigated the scene, Bjerke said.
