'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 said Monday that two local road projects are postponed.

PennDOT said an Allegheny Valley Railroad project to replace pavement at a railroad crossing in Baldwin Borough will begin at 9 a.m. Monday instead of this week. Work is expected to continue through 4 a.m. Oct. 31, PennDOT said.

Signs weren't posted in advance to alert motorists of the planned work on Streets Run Road between Missionary Drive and East Willock Road. The section of road is used by about 15,000 vehicles a day.

Also, PennDOT said it scrapped plans to close Route 28 southbound in the area of the Millvale exit from Friday night through Monday morning. The University of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Steelers both play football games at Heinz Field this weekend. The next Route 28 closure is scheduled for Nov. 9-12.
