'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.

Repairs to the Agatha Street Bridge in Pitcairn are near completion.

“The construction process itself is going very smoothly,” Pitcairn engineer Don Black said at a last week's borough council meeting.

Crews stabilized the lower portion of the bridge, and it should take about a month to restore the surface, assuming the weather cooperates, Black said.

Borough officials expect to receive about $185,000 from Allegheny County for the project, borough manager Malisa Migliori said. Migliori said the total cost of the project can't be determined until the project is complete.

Because the bridge is near the Propel Pitcairn school, borough and school officials have rerouted school buses and local traffic during the construction, said Angela Gaitaniella, spokeswoman for Propel Pitcairn.

“Traffic will resume as normal when the project is finished,” Gaitaniella said.
