Oslo Road Widening Project
The proposed project includes the widening from two to four lanes a rural segment of Olso Road, an east-west facility located southwest of Vero Beach, located in Indian River County. The length of the project is approximately 3 miles and the limits extend from east of 82nd Avenue to 58th Avenue. In this context, 82nd Avenue is as realigned by the interchange project, 413048-2-52-01.
The project also will complement previous four-lane widening projects on Oslo Road east of the project limits from Southwest 58th Avenue to Southwest 27th Avenue. In conjunction with proposed Oslo Interchange project (413048-2-52-01), 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.
The proposed improvements for this project include: adding lanes and reconstructing Oslo Road, improving drainage, signing, signalization, bicycle lanes and sidewalks. Right of way acquisition is required for the roadway corridor and for the off-site ponds.
