Washington Avenue is a west-east commercial road, part of which is in the city of Racine, Wisconsin. The road extends 3.36 miles (5.41 km) from its eastern terminus at the 7th Street roundabout, where it intersects with 6th Street and 7th Street, to Racine's city limits near South Green Bay Road in the west, and then continues as Washington Avenue in the village of Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin. For its entire length in the city of Racine, Washington Avenue carries Wisconsin Highway 20, and it additionally carries Wisconsin Highway 32 from its eastern end to Racine Street. Traveling southwest from the roundabout in Downtown Racine, Washington Avenue is the main thoroughfare through the Midtown and Uptown neighborhoods. In the heart of Uptown, the road merges with 14th Street and follows an overpass above Memorial Drive. Washington then turns northwest to merge with 12th Street at West Boulevard in the center of the West Racine neighborhood, before proceeding due west to the Racine city limits and into Mount Pleasant.

West of West Boulevard, Washington Avenue follows the route of 12th Street and is equivalent to 1200 in Racine's addressing system; that is, buildings along cross streets immediately south of Washington have street addresses beginning with 1200, while buildings immediately north of it have addresses beginning with 1100.
