Mike McCarthy Way becomes a reality

3/25/2015

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- More than four years after the idea was first broached, Mike McCarthy finally has his own street.

The village of Ashwaubenon put up the signs on Tuesday, turning what was formally known as Potts Avenue into Mike McCarthy Way.

Thanks to Twitter follower Kyle Cousineau for snapping a photo and allowing us to share it.

Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt first promised the Green Bay Packers coach a street in his honor after the Packers won Super Bowl XLV.

It wasn't until last summer that city and village officials settled on Potts Avenue as the street to rename. It runs along the south end of the Packers' practice fields, adjacent to the Don Hutson Center, and intersects with another street named for a Packers' Super Bowl-winning coach.
