Frontera Bridge (Spanish for Border Bridge) is a railroad bridge in Red Dead Redemption in the Río Bravo region of the New Austin territory.

It crosses the San Luis River between Río Bravo in New Austin, United States, to Punta Orgullo in Nuevo Paraiso, Mexico.


Red Dead Redemption

A large portion of the Luisa Fortuna mission "Father Abraham" takes place at this location.

As with the other entry points into Mexico, Frontera Bridge is in disrepair during the New Austin chapter. However, unlike the others, it remains incomplete for a short while even when the player has gained access to Mexico.

Undead Nightmare

The mission "American Imperialism" ends in this location.


  • Interestingly, as with all the other New Austin crossings, the signs say "Entering Mexico" in America and "Leaving Mexico" in Mexico. The sign should logically say "Entering United States".
  • If the player stands underneath the bridge support on the Punta Orgullo side, New Austin music will play, but the game registers the player being in Mexico.
  • It is the only railway crossing that doesn't have a pedestrian walkway of some form.
  • It is advised to not run a horse down this crossing at full speed, due in part to the curve making it difficult to stay in the center and the small width of the bridge.
  • Underneath the bridge on the Nuevo Paraíso side, there is a small abandoned campsite with a chest containing $15-$25.
  • Jeremy Gill in Red Dead Redemption 2 references Frontera Bridge in Fisher of Fish II, despite not being built yet. This may point that Nuevo Paraiso was to be accessible at some point in development.
