Once 24 miles (39 km) long, State Road 951 (SR 951), locally known as Collier Boulevard, is a 7-mile-long (11 km) north–south divided highway that extends from the south end of the Judge S.S. Jolley Bridge in Marco Island to the Tamiami Trail (US 41/SR 90) near Naples Manor, along with a short 1⁄2 mile (0.80 km) piece between SR 84 and I-75.
State Road 951 begins at the south end of the Judge SS Jolly Bridge in Marco Island, crossing Big Marco Pass, passing through marshland and woodland as it leaves Marco Island and heads towards the mainland, crossing an intersection with CR 952 (Capri Boulevard). The next intersection, Mainsail Drive, provides access to Marco Island Executive Airport. Further north on the mainland, the road passes by some newer housing and country club developments as it intersects with Tamiami Trail, the northern terminus of the southern segment.
The road resumes near Golden Gate at SR 84's eastern terminus on Florida's Gulf Coast, and has an interchange with I-75 at the west end of Alligator Alley, with the northern end of the interchange being the northern terminus.
A numbering anomaly within the Florida Department of Transportation’s numbering system of State Roads, SR 951 is the only SR 9xx highway that is not in Miami-Dade County: Krome Avenue (SR 997) lies 78 miles (126 km) to the east; the similarly numbered SR 953 (LeJeune Road) is another 12.5 miles (20.1 km) to the east of SR 997.

State Road 951 had extended an additional 14 miles (23 km) northward to an intersection with the then-State Road 846 (now County Road 846), which provides access to the Big Cypress Swamp town of Immokalee and the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. The state road designations of the northern portion of this road were phased out in the 1980s, as they were also removed from others in the Big Cypress Swamp.
State Road 951 formerly extended 2.6 miles (4.2 km) to the south, terminating at County Road 92 (San Marco Road) in Marco Island. This section was turned over to the city on November 29, 2004.
The entire route is in Collier County.
