'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.

An overhaul of the Whitehall Eat'n Park will improve accommodations for those looking to grab a Smiley Cookie or Superburger from the Pittsburgh establishment, project leaders said.

The addition of a pick-up window, larger bathroom facilities and an interior remodel and exterior facade upgrade are part of the renovations planned at the Eat'n Park, at 5100 Clairton Blvd., said Jesse Stock, project manager for Eat'n Park Hospitality Group.

“The two additions are not a bunch of seats. They're not a big space to add more tables. They're just to add other amenities, cleanliness and other options for our customers there,” Stock said.

Whitehall Council members in a 6-0 vote at their Aug. 7 meeting approved site plans for the project, which includes a 1,090-square-foot addition to the restaurant.

Councilwoman Kathy DePuy was absent.

The upgrades to the Whitehall Eat'n Park, set to begin within the next several weeks, are similar to the renovations completed at the company's Shaler restaurant, Stock said.

“This is one of the largest, if not the largest remodels that we've performed,” Stock said.

The last upgrade at the restaurant was about seven years ago, Stock said.

The biggest change planned is the addition of a pick-up window, he said.

Changes also will be made to parking, partly in an effort to reduce traffic cut-throughs in the lot, Stock said. The project also will decrease the pavement on site, allowing for more landscaping and better drainage, he said.

Construction will be completed mostly during the night to allow the restaurant to stay open during the day, he said.
