ALBION – When the snow comes his winter, blanketing the local landscape, sledders in the Albion area will see a new look at the Bullard Park sledding hill.

The village used dirt from the Clarendon Street bridge approaches to reshape the hill, shifting it from facing south to west. It will also have a gentler slope with hand railings and stairs on top.

The bridge was taken out this year and Keeler Construction, the contractor on that project, hauled dirt to the sledding hill.

Employees from the Village of Albion Department of Public Works and the Albion Town Highway Department worked together to assemble the stairs, welding the pieces together on Wednesday.

The sledding hill now faces west.
