The State Highway Patrol said they'll be conducting an OVI Checkpoint this weekend.

The checkpoint will take place in Coshocton County Friday night. The OVI checkpoint is funded by federal grants and is planned to deter and intercept impaired drivers.

Zanesville Post Commander Lt. Steven Rhine said that the checkpoints are a safe and effective deterrent to impaired driving and are an ideal complement to the state's enforcement efforts.

The checkpoint is just one of four others taking place across the state. Athens, Franklin, Hancock and Marion counties will all hold checkpoints as well.
