Olive tree roots will grow outward as wide as the tree's canopy. You've not indicated your location, but I would suggest you contact a certified arborist before making this decision, or at least contact your local agricultural extension agency: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/extension-search?zip=19720&radius=10&services_search_action=search&submit=Search
Nearby structures may be at risk, so it's important to talk with someone who knows the variety of tree you have, your climate and your specific situation.
