Description 

The S.S. Jolley Memorial Bridge is a twin-span bridge that carries Collier Boulevard (CR 951) over East Marco Bay connecting the Florida mainland with Marco Island. The first/original bridge is a concrete girder bridge with steel plate girder main spans and was constructed in 1969 to carry two-way traffic (one lane in each direction). In 2011, a second bridge was built south of the original bridge to carry two lanes of one-way northbound traffic, after which the original bridge was reconfigured to carry two lanes of one-way southbound traffic.

The Jolley Bridge is sometimes referred to as the "West Bridge" by locals as it is the northern/western bridge to Marco Island (the Goodland Bridge is the southern/eastern bridge).
