Main Street is a major north-south commercial street in Racine, Wisconsin, which continues into the neighboring municipalities of Caledonia and Wind Point north of Racine, and passes through the village of North Bay inside Racine. It is the primary thoroughfare in downtown Racine, and runs parallel with the shoreline of Lake Michigan, which is a few blocks away for most of the street's length. The Main Street Bridge, which connects North Main Street with the downtown section, is the last crossing over the Root River before it enters the lake. The street runs for 4.0 miles (6.4 km) in the city, between Three Mile Road, at the city's northern limits, and Carre-Hogle Park, where it ends in a cul-de-sac. Another unconnected 0.1 miles (0.16 km) cul-de-sac called Main Street continues out of the park, ending at Wisconsin Avenue just north of its intersection with DeKoven Avenue. South of the Root River, Main Street is equivalent to 200 in Racine's addressing system; that is, buildings along cross streets immediately west of Main have street addresses beginning with 200, while buildings immediately east of it have addresses beginning with 100. North Main Street, however, is equivalent to 400.

History[edit | edit source]

In 1996, the Main Street Bridge was demolished and replaced.
