The Jonathan Michael (Mike) Gilotti Memorial Bridge is a 4-lane concrete bridge which carries U.S. Highway 150 (John Hawkins Parkway) over Shades Creek in Hoover, between Ross Bridge Parkway and Lake Cyrus Parkway.

The bridge was dedicated on August 13, 2019 in memory of Mike Gilotti, an insurance claims adjuster and Iraq War veteran who was shot to death in his driveway in the Lake Cyrus subdivision in January 2016.

At the urging of council member Casey Middlebrooks, the Hoover City Council passed a resolution in November 2018 requesting the state legislature to honor Gilotti. The measure was passed in May 2019.
