The Zanesville Post of the State HIghway Patrol will hold a sobriety checkpoint Friday night on US 22 in Newton Township.  Troopers say the location of the checkpoint is on 22 just south of  Wal-Mart.  It is scheduled to take place between 10:00 pm and 2:00 am.  The checkpoint is funded by federal grants and is designed to deter and intercept impaired drivers.  The Highway Patrol says if you plan to consume alcohol, designate a driver or make other travel arrangements before you drink.
