'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.

Two public projects could affect traffic on different parts of Route 51 in Pittsburgh starting Monday.

Port Authority will close the Wabash Tunnel connecting Route 51 and the South Side from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily through Friday. Crews are replacing a ventilation fan.

Further south in Carrick, PennDOT will close the right-hand northbound lane of 51 nightly between Stewart Avenue and Ivyglen Street. The closure will happen from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. on weeknights through Feb. 28. Crews are working on a Verizon utility vault, PennDOT said.
