'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.

Interstate 79 traffic will drop to a single lane in both directions from Thursday through late March in the area of the Route 422 interchange in Butler County, PennDOT said.

The left-hand lane will close in both directions about 7 a.m. Thursday so crews can continue building temporary crossovers through the interstate's median in Muddy Creek. Contractors will use the crossovers to divert traffic around planned work to replace the interstate's two bridges over Route 422.

The work is part of a $14 million project to make improvements in the area, used by about 25,000 vehicles a day, on average. The project will be completed in fall 2014.
