Red Dead Wiki

Dixon Crossing is a beam bridge in Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Red Dead Online in the Hennigan's Stead region of the New Austin territory.


Red Dead Redemption

Dixon Crossing is a bridge running north out of Thieves' Landing in New Austin, into the southern Great Plains of West Elizabeth.

Until the player completes the Abraham Reyes mission "An Appointed Time" gaining access to West Elizabeth, Dixon Crossing will be in a state of construction and therefore impassable. This bridge is the border between states.

Red Dead Redemption 2

Dixon Crossing is unnamed on the map. There is a sign that reads "Welcome to New Austin" on the south side of the bridge. This sign is absent in Red Dead Redemption, however.


  • When considered alongside the nearby Mason's Bridge, the name Dixon's Crossing is an obvious reference to the Mason-Dixon line.
  • Despite being part of both New Austin and West Elizabeth, the game will register the player as being in New Austin (evidenced by the music playing in the background) until a fair distance is travelled into West Elizabeth. When the title "Great Plains" appears at the top of the screen, the game then registers the player as being in West Elizabeth.
  • Strangely enough, in Undead Nightmare the bridge is still being built and on fire, but after "Curious Tales from Blackwater" the bridge is fully built.
