Highway Patrol to hold 2 OVI checkpoints in Elyria tonight

The Ohio Highway Patrol, in conjunction with the Elyria Police Department, will hold two OVI checkpoints tonight.

Both checkpoints will be held in Elyria from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. The locations will be on Lorain Boulevard at Foster Avenue, and on Cleveland Street near Harwood Street.

The checkpoints also will be held in conjunction with nearby saturation patrols to aggressively combat alcohol-related injury and fatal crashes.

The checkpoints, funded by federal grants, are planned to deter and intercept impaired drivers.
