'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.

Work crews are continuing to stabilize the hillside to the northeast of Nadine Road, after a landslide during the first weekend in May brought down a roughly 35-foot-wide swath of the hill, taking out trees and damaging the guardrail along the roadside.

County communications director Amie Downs said work is expected to last another two to three weeks.

Nadine Road is currently closed to “thru” traffic, but residents living along the road have local access. Drivers are encouraged to use Sandy Creek Road as an alternative route down to Allegheny River Boulevard.
