'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.

Plans to replace the Trafford Bridge along Route 130 will be displayed at an open house next month at Trafford Middle School.

State and federal officials are completing a preliminary design for the replacement of the 1,022-foot-long bridge with a new span. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2011 on the $12 million project.

Plans will be available to the public from 5 to 7 p.m. Sept. 3 at the school's cafeteria.

PennDOT officials said traffic will be detoured during the bridge replacement. The bridge crosses over Turtle Creek, Stewart Station Drive, vacant land owned by CBS Corp. and an active rail line owned by Norfolk Southern.

For more information, call PennDOT Project Manager Troy Pritts at 724-415-2401.
