US 85 begins at the U.S.-Mexico border between El Paso and Ciudad Juárez at the Paso del Norte International Bridge for northbound traffic and the Good Neighbor International Bridge for southbound traffic. The international bridges overpass without directly intersecting Loop 375. The highway follows S. El Paso St. northbound and S. Stanton St. southbound to Paisano Dr. Railroad runs along side. The El Paso and Northeastern Railroad Company was chartered on June 5, 1896. It was to connect El Paso with a point on the boundary line between Texas and New Mexico twenty miles northeast of the city. El Paso was a remote frontier town until railroads arrived in 1881.
