Night work on the Dedham Square Improvement Project scheduled to start tonight has been canceled due to impending inclement weather.

According to the National Weather Service, Dedham may experience heavy winds, rain, and possibly snow starting Wednesday morning.

According to a notice from the town, construction crews will remain on day shifts from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the rest of the week.

In addition to the notice about night work, the town is asking Dedham residents and business owners who have had new concrete sidewalks installed to not use deicers this winter.

The sidewalks may not have cured enough to withstand most winter deicing chemicals so the Department of Public Works will deice using sand treated with magnesium chloride.

Anyone in the square who sees icy situations not being handled by the town should call 781-751-9350 instead of trying to treat the ice themselves.
