OVI checkpoint planned
THE Ohio State Highway Patrol will operate an OVI checkpoint this week to deter and intercept impaired drivers.
The county where the checkpoint will take place will be announced the day prior to the checkpoint, and the location will be announced the morning of the checkpoint.
If you plan to consume alcohol, designate a driver or make other travel arrangements before you drink. Don't let another life be lost for the senseless and selfish act of getting behind the wheel impaired.
Operational support for the sobriety checkpoint will be provided by local law enforcement agencies.
Sand Hill Road open
BELMONT COUNTY Road 4, Sand Hill Road, is open to all traffic as of 3 p.m. on Tuesday. The road was closed for a bridge replacement project at the intersection of Ohio 149 near Neffs.
