Driver to be honored with street named after him

Four months after his retirement, Donald Driver will have a street named in his honor.

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Donald Driver Way is about to become an official part of Green Bay. 

Four months after Driver retired as the Packers’ all-time leading receiver, the Green Bay mayor’s office is ready to unveil a street in his honor.

Driver and Green Bay mayor Jim Schmitt have set June 15 to display the new street sign, with the public welcome to attend.

"It's crazy to think I went from living on the street as a kid to now having my own street," Driver said in a statement. "I never could have dreamed this day would come and am so thankful to Mayor Schmitt, the City Council and all the fans that made this possible."

That ceremony will also be when Driver is presented with his own statue. The Packers decided to refurbish the old, generic receiver statue and make it specifically for Driver.
