Sobriety checkpoint planned

ELKINS — The West Virginia State Police will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint in Randolph County on Harrison Avenue (WV Route 92) near Crystal Springs on Nov. 17 from 6 p.m. to midnight.

This checkpoint will be conducted in an effort to deter intoxicated driving in the area. It is not the intention of the West Virginia State Police to inconvenience any of the motoring public, but only to make the roadways safer for those traveling in West Virginia.

If anyone feels they do not wish to travel through the checkpoint on Harrison Avenue because they feel inconvenienced, they can take an alternate route. The alternate routes are Lough Avenue to Ferguson Road if traveling westbound, and Ferguson Road to Lough Avenue if traveling eastbound on Harrison Avenue.
