'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.

Drivers along Route 22 near the Monroeville-Murrysville border should expect delays in the evening through at least Friday.

A contractor for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has begun work installing a new drainage pipe along Route 22 westbound at the intersection of Old William Penn Highway.

The contractor, Carmen Paliotta Contracting of Pleasant Hills, began the project earlier this week. Traffic patterns will be adjusted from 7 p.m. through 6 a.m. through Friday. The right lane of Route 22 and the turning lane of Old William Penn Highway will be shut down near the intersection.

The Route 22 work is part of a $582,929 project repairing roadways at three slide locations. Work was completed on Trafford-Murrysville Road, just south of the Turnpike Bridge, in Penn Township and Route 993 east of Irwin last month.

PennDOT officials and Murrysville police warn drivers to proceed with caution through the work zone.
