'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Portions of Cedar Run Road in Indiana Township will be closed this week for maintenance.

Motorists who travel the road will face closures mainly during daylight hours, township manager Dan Anderson said.

“It would generally be times between 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.,” he said.

Cedar Run Road stretches along the northwestern part of the township, off Route 910.

Anderson said the work is part of routine maintenance to prepare the township road for winter.

The township's public works department rented a machine called “The Zipper,” he said.

“It's a milling machine, and the roughest parts of the road will be made back to a gradable state,” he said. “It's to improve the surface condition of the road prior to winter.”

Only portions of the road will be closed at once, so it still will be passable.

Work is expected to last about a week.

Roadwork also is expected to stall traffic along the Highland Park Bridge this week.

PennDOT crews will be inspecting overhead signs for safety.

Short-term lane closures will occur between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Only one direction will be restricted at a time.
