KENT — Motorists should be prepared for possible delays on Route 59 between Route 43 and the Stow border, starting June 17.

Crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation will begin resurfacing Route 59 as part of a $1.7 million project that includes resurfacing that stretch of the state route. One lane east and westbound traffic will be maintained.

There will be nighttime lane restrictions between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. for milling; all other work will be done during the day. 

The project is scheduled to be complete by late August, according to information from ODOT.
