Dixon Crossing is a location featured in Red Dead Redemption in the Hennigan's Stead region of the New Austin territory.


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 uncrossable. This bridge is the border between states.


  • 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 you as being in New Austin (evidenced by the music playing in the background) until you've traveled a fair distance 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.
