'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.

PennDOT District 11 is announcing the structurally-deficient bridge that carries Plum Street (Route 2080) over Plum Creek in Oakmont will be closed to traffic long-term beginning on Monday, April 15.

Traffic will be detoured using the following routes:

From the west: Take Allegheny River Boulevard (Route 2073) south; make a left onto Sandy Creek Road (Route 130); continue east and turn left onto Saltsburg Road (Route 2058); left onto Hamill Road (Route 2078); turn right onto Hulton Road (Route 2074); bear left onto Indiana Road (Route 2070); bear left onto Hamill Road; turn right onto Hunter Road (Route 2080); continue straight to Plum Street.

The closure will begin at 7 a.m. on Monday and continue through early July. The bridge area is east of Allegheny River Boulevard (Route 2037) near the intersection with Dark Hollow Road. About 2,614 vehicles use this bridge on an average day.

The $1.2 million project includes replacing the bridge deck, strip seal dams, sidewalk and parapets, substructure repairs, spot/zone painting, milling and overlay the approaches and other improvements.

When the project is completed, the structurally-deficient rating will be removed.
