Route descriptionEdit

Beginning at a junction with US 77 (Future I-69E) at Riviera in Kleberg County, SH 285 runs southwest and west to a junction with US 281 (Future I-69C) at Falfurrias in Brooks County. In Riviera the highway is known as Olive Avenue; in Falfurrias it is known as Rice Street. SH 285 continues northwest and west to a junction with SH 339 and then to its final junction with SH 16 at Hebbronville in Jim Hogg County, where the route is known as Fal Street. SH 285 was designated on March 31, 1939, from Falfurrias to Hebbronville.[2] On September 26, 1939 as part of a general redescription of the state highway system, SH 285 extended east to its current end, replacing a part of SH 16. Most of the terrain covered by SH 285 is lightly populated ranch and oil country.
