'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.

Renovations to the Eat'n Park in Shaler Township will begin as soon as February.

Last week, Shaler Township Board of Commissioners approved the revised site plan for the Eat'n Park, located at Route 8 and Saxonburg Boulevard, after some discussion to clarify the changes.

T.J. Gentile, director of construction for the Eat'n Park Hospitality Group, said the plan will add a pick-up window, update the interior and move the entrance at the Eat'n Park to increase safety.

“This has nothing to do with money,” Gentile said. “This has everything to do with people's safety.”

The revisions to the site plan will move the Dumpster location closer to the building, change the entrance and bathroom location from the original plan and add a speed hump to the parking lot.

Tim Rogers, township manager, requested Gentile meet with Kevin Creagh, township engineer; Bob Vita, code enforcement officer; and the police chief to ensure that all parties are in agreement about improvements made to the parking lot and the lot's traffic pattern.

Traffic will enter or exit the parking lot at the Route 8 entrances or the Middle Road entrance at the top of the lot. There also will be an ingress-only entrance at Middle Road near the intersection, of Saxonburg Boulevard, to be used by pick-up window customers. Curbs and sidewalks will be added to the parking lot to define the parking spots and entrances and exits.

“By late February the shovels go down,” Gentile told the commissioners.

Renovations will take about three months to complete. The restaurant will remain open through renovations with the exceptions of four Mondays.
