I-95 and Oslo Road Interchange and Widening Project
The proposed project includes the construction of an interchange of I-95 and Oslo Road in southern Indian River County. Oslo Road currently crosses over, but does not provide access to, I-95 at this location. The proposed interchange would be located approximately 5.5 miles north of the existing Indrio Road/SR 614 interchange and 3.8 miles south of the existing SR 60 interchange. The new interchange is designed as a rural diamond interchange with partial clover leaf loop ramps. The project also includes the widening of Oslo road from a two-lane facility to a four-lane divided facility from east of 82nd Avenue to 58th Avenue. The project also includes the replacement of the existing Oslo Road bridge over I-95. Due to the proximity of the interchange, the existing 82nd Avenue will be relocated east and 86th Avenue SW connection to Oslo Road will be eliminated. The project will include a new construction of 13th Street SW which connects 86th AVenue SW with 90th Avenue SW.
Other project improvement include:
The project complements previous four-lane widening projects on Oslo Road east of the project limits from Southwest 58th Avenue to Southwest 27th Avenue. The result will be that Oslo Road will be a continuous four-lane roadway from I-95 to US 1. Overall, the proposed improvements will allow Oslo Road to operate as a main arterial providing east-west movement of local, regional and truck traffic. The Indian River MPO's Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan identifies a need for rural bike lanes and wide sidewalks along Oslo Road.
Right of way acquisition is required for the roadway corridor and for the off-site ponds.
