The checkpoints are scheduled for Murfreesboro Rd. near Dick Buchanan St. at 10:00 p.m. and Murfreesboro Rd. across from City Hall at 12:30 a.m.

The cost of the saturation patrols is covered through a Governor's Highway Office Safety grant. The grant funding pays for overtime of law enforcement officers to patrol the streets looking for drunk or impaired drivers.
