County Road 858

County Road 858 stretches 20.57 miles east along Oil Well Road from Orangetree in Collier County to Ave Maria and 7.66 miles north along the Hendry County line to CR 846. A 39 million project completed in Spring 2012 widened Oil Well Road from two to four lanes from CR 846 (Immokalee Road) at Orangetree east nearly three miles to a point west of Everglades Boulevard. An additional four miles were expanded to six overall lanes from Oil Well Grade Road east to Ave Maria Boulevard.1

The Randall Blvd and Oil Well Rd Corridor Study evaluated roadway network improvements at Orangetree. network The Collier County Board of County Commissioners voted to approve the staff recommendation on May 14, 2019. The recommendation outlined widening Randall Boulevard east from CR 846 (Immokalee Road) to Everglades Boulevard to six lanes and from Everglades Boulevard to DeSoto Boulevard to four lanes. Four lane expansion was also outlined for Everglades Boulevard north from Randall Boulevard to CR 858 (Oil Well Road).2 The remaining two lane section of Oil Well Road will be widened to six lanes.

Historically, County Road 858 was a part of Florida Secondary 858. S-858 initially comprised a spur from U.S. 94 at East Naples along Bayshore Drive south, Thomasson Drive west and Hamilton Avenue south. The leg east from SR 29 to the Hendry County line was designated as S-840 in 1955. S-858 was extended north along Airport-Pulling Road and east along Radio Road to Collier Boulevard by 1959. Collier Boulevard north to S-846 (Immokalee Road) was completed by 1960 and incorporated into S-858. S-858 across Oil Well Road was designated by 1973.

A number of changes were made to the Secondary Road system in Collier County by January 1, 1976. These included renumbering all of S-858 in the Naples area and replacing S-840 east of SR 29 with an extension of S-858 from Oil Well Road. The S-858 spur south from East Naples became apart of an extended S-31, which also replaced S-858 along Airport-Pulling Road. S-858 on Radio Road was renumbered S-856, and S-858 along Collier Boulevard was replaced by an extension of S-951 north to Immokalee Road.
