'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.

Penn Township officials closed the bridge on Saunders Station Road in Level Green this week and don't have an estimate for when it might reopen.

Manager Bruce Light said the bridge, which is between Home Drive and Route 130, was closed to traffic on Tuesday. Traffic on the bridge had been restricted to one lane.

Light said the bridge was closed because of continuing deterioration. Officials don't have an estimate for how much it will cost to replace the bridge.
