'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.

Traffic clogged roads leading to Pittsburgh's North Shore Saturday morning as fans lined up early for the evening Kenny Chesney concert at Heinz Field.

Fans began waiting at 6:30 a.m. for a spot in the parking lots around the stadium, according to Pittsburgh police. By 11:15, most lots around the stadium were filled, sporting a sea of sun umbrellas and tailgating fans.

Traffic backed up on the Parkway West to Carnegie for most of the morning. Traffic moved slowly on Route 65, North Shore Expressway and Route 28 ramps leading to the North Shore.

An officer at Pittsburgh's Zone 1 station said motorists should expect problems through the morning, but traffic patrols were working to move vehicles into lots.

The concert, which also features Eric Church, the Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves begins at 5 p.m.
