Civil War Checkpoints is at its heart an immersion mod. It adds military outposts at major intersections to give a greater sense of security and authority to Skyrim during the civil war.  

New/Redesigned Layouts - The Checkpoints have been redesigned. 
Guard Schedules - Guards now eat, sleep, and do other activities as well as their patrols.
Item/Container Owners - No longer can you take from the checkpoint inhabitants without repercussions.
Reacts to Civil War Progress - As you progress through the civil war the checkpoints will change hands.
Modular - You can now decide which checkpoints you want in your game.

Dragonbridge - A compact chokepoint on the single major roadway leading to Solitude. (Imperial)
Windhelm - Two positions; one in the mountain pass south of the city and the other acting as a gate for the bridge to the southwest. (Stormcloak)
Whiterun - A stopgap for the controllers of the city to inspect anyone entering. (Neutral/Imperial)

-Use the nexus mod manager/vortex or unpack the file and place the esp and any other files in your Skyrim data folder.
