Snow and Ice Removal


The Public Service Department works hard to keep the streets of Powell clear and safe for travel. During a snow event, the City operates on a primary, secondary, and tertiary clearing schedule as follows:


  • Powell Road
  • Olentangy Street
  • Liberty Street
  • Murphy Parkway
  • Sawmill Road
  • Sawmill Parkways



  • Ridge Side Drive
  • Ashmoore Drive
  • Village Park Drive
  • Chenango Drive
  • Hopewell Drive
  • Beech Ridge Place
  • Briarbend Boulevard
  • Vinwood Lane
  • Zion Drive
  • Grandshire Drive
  • Weatherburn Drive
  • Olentangy Ridge Place
  • Bartholomew Boulevard



Once the snow event ends and the primary and secondary streets are cleared, other streets and cul-de-sacs within the community will be addressed.


Check out the City‘s snow removal map to find out the priority level of your street.

Snow Removal Tips

Avoid parking on streets or courts overnight when snow is possible.

Try to keep fire hydrants clear of snow if one is located in your yard.

Place snow plowed from your driveway to the right (looking from your house to the street). This will help City staff keep from plowing the snow back onto your property.

Be cautious of the hill at SR 315 and Powell Road/St. Rt. 750. This stretch of road often is very slippery and is not within the City’s maintenance jurisdiction.

Please be patient as attention must first be focused on keeping the main streets and school bus routes open.
