LISBON, Ohio -

The Ohio State Highway Patrol will be holding an OVI checkpoint in Columbiana County Friday night.

Troopers say the location of the checkpoint will be announced Friday morning. 

Law enforcement agencies are required to announce the date, time and, and location of all OVI check points.

About the checkpoint's aim, Lisbon OSHP Lieutenant Brode says that, "OVI checkpoints are designed to not only deter impaired driving, but to proactively remove these dangerous drivers from our roadways."

Columbiana County's checkpoint, according to state troopers, is funded by federal grants.
