PORT HURON — The construction at the crossroads of 10th and Garfield Streets has been busy in Port Huron. The students at Garfield Elementary were tasked with naming the street that will debut as a result of the new McNeil Creek subdivision. The top five names have been narrowed to:

  • Gator Alley

  • Education Drive

  • Gator Ave. 

  • Chomps Court

  • Garfield Gator Gateway


The Garfield Elementary mascot is a gator named Chomps, who served as the inspiration for several of the names. On Thursday, December 9, 2021, the students at Garfield Elementary will reveal the top vote earner for the names, which will then be presented to Port Huron City Council for approval and adoption. 


MEDIA: Please contact Keely Baribeau if you wish to attend the brief name reveal event. Masks/Face coverings are required.
