Mexico's Federal Highway 85 (Carretera Federal 85) connects Mexico City with the U.S. border at Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas. It is the original route of the Inter-American Highway, but has been largely replaced by the faster Highway 57 for through traffic.
Highway 85 runs through Monterrey, Nuevo León; Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas; Ciudad Valles, San Luis Potosí; and Pachuca, Hidalgo. It ends at the intersection of Highway 95 in the San Pedro area of Mexico City.
Highway 85 is the original route of the Pan-American Highway from the border to the capital. Through most of Tamaulipas and Nuevo León, it is a freeway and is essentially a southern continuation of U.S. Interstate 35.
