In Riviera the highway is known as Olive Avenue; in Falfurrias it is known as Rice Street. SH 285 continues northwest and west to a junction with SH 339 and then to its final junction with SH 16 at Hebbronville in Jim Hogg County, where the route is known as Fal Street.
The route is essentially unchanged from its original designation in 1939 as part of a general redescription of the state highway system. Most of the terrain covered by SH 285 is lightly populated ranch and oil country.
