Infatuated with coworker

I'm completely in love with the girl who sits next to me at work. I can't stop thinking about her. What should I do?
We talk quite a bit at work about non-work topics, she confides in me things she doesn't tell other people, and we talk online at night for hours. I haven't fallen for someone this hard in years.
People at our company date each other all the time. Still, it'd be really awkward if this didn't work out. I'm also 70% sure she's dating a coworker in another department since they hang out one-on-one in person all the time on weekends though she denied it and quickly changed topics when someone joked about it. It's completely possible she just sees me as a work friend. We rarely hang out outside of work even during this long weekend, though she does live a few hours away.
What do I do? Making a move is nuclear disaster-prone, but I'm going insane and don't want to regret this when I'm old and gray. What's my next move?
