Washington Road is a 25.6-mile-long (41.2 km) major road in the east-central part of the U.S. state of Georgia, traveling through the northeastern part of Columbia and Richmond counties. At its western end, it is fairly rural, but at its eastern end, it is an urban corridor of the Augusta metropolitan area. It connects rural areas of northeastern Columbia County with Evans, Martinez, and Augusta. It also serves as one of the main entry points to Augusta National Golf Club. From its western terminus, on the Lincoln–Columbia county line, to Pollards Corner, it is signed as part of Georgia State Route 47 (SR 47). In Pollards Corner, it is briefly signed as part of SR 150. From Pollards Corner to Augusta, it is signed as part of SR 104. In Martinez, it is briefly signed as part of SR 232. In Augusta, it is signed as the entirety of SR 104 Connector and part of SR 28.
Washington Road begins concurrent with Georgia State Route 47 (SR 47) at the Lincoln–Columbia county line, on the Price–Legg Bridge over the Little River. Northwest of here, SR 47 has the local name of Augusta Highway. SR 47/Washington Road travel to the southeast. After a southerly jog, they continue to the southeast, skirting along the western edge of Pointes West Army Resort. Then, they cross over Kegg Creek on the Major Byron S. McGuire Sr. Memorial Bridge, just before skirting along the southwestern edge of Wildwood Park. Just over 1 mile (1.6 km) later, the roadway enters Pollards Corner. There, they intersect with SR 150 (Cobbham Road). SR 47/SR 150/Washington Road travel concurrently for one block. At an intersection with U.S. Route 221 (US 221), SR 47 splits off to travel concurrent with US 221 south, while SR 150 splits off to travel concurrent with US 221 north. This intersection also marks the western terminus of SR 104, which travels concurrent with Washington Road for approximately half its length. The highways cross over Kiokee Creek on the Robert W. Pollard Bridge. Just over 1.5 miles (2.4 km) later, they cross over Little Kiokee Creek on the B. Edward Tankersley Memorial Bridge. Slightly more than 2 miles (3.2 km) after that, they cross over Euchee Creek on the G.B. "Dip" Lamkin Bridge. Just before entering Evans, they transition into a retail corridor. In town, they travel southwest of Evans Towne Center Park and intersect the northern terminus of SR 383 (North Belair Road). They curve to the east and intersect SR 232 (Columbia Road) on the Evans–Martinez city line. SR 104/SR 232/Washington Road travel concurrent for approximately 0.2 miles (0.32 km). At an intersection with Old Evans Road, SR 232 splits off onto Bobby Jones Expressway. After curving to the east-southeast, SR 104/Washington Road enter Richmond County.
Immediately after entering the county, SR 104/Washington Road intersect the western terminus of SR 104 Connector. At this intersection, SR 104 splits off to the north on Pleasant Home Road. At the eastern terminus of SR 104 Connector, they intersect SR 28 (Furys Ferry Road). Approximately 3,000 feet (910 m) later, the roadway has an interchange with Interstate 20 (I-20; Carl Sanders Highway). Immediately after curving to the southeast, SR 28/Washington skirt along the northeastern edge of Augusta National Golf Club, southwest of Garrett Elementary School. They curve to the south-southeast and meet the eastern terminus of Washington Road just northwest of Lake Olmstead. Here, SR 28 continues to the east, known as John C. Calhoun Expressway, a freeway that leads to the southeast part of downtown Augusta. There is also an incomplete interchange with Broad Street.
National Highway System
All of Washington Road, from approximately William Few Parkway, northwest of Evans, eastward, is part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility.
