'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.

Speedway officials have tentative plans to build a 3,900-square-foot convenience store and install 16 gas pumps on a Penn Township site along Route 130 near the Pleasant Valley Road intersection.

Last week, the township's planning and zoning commission recommended that township commissioners approve a subdivision plan that would enable TCMZT Realty Group to carve about a 2-acre parcel from a 4-acre piece of property for the proposed station.

Marathon Petroleum, Speedway's parent company, has a sales agreement for the new lot, according to Don Hultberg of The EADS Group, which is Speedway's engineering consultant.

Township commissioners could vote on the subdivision during one of their February meetings.

After that approval, Speedway will submit its formal site plan to the township's planning and zoning commission for its review, Hultberg said.

The subdivision plan includes the installation of a road to the gas station that could be extended to access an undeveloped 14-acre property that TCMZT owns behind the subdivided lot.

Speedway also is trying to build new stations in Unity Township, New Stanton, Delmont and Oakmont.
