History / other
The federal highway 485 was established in the mid / late 1960s to improve the network of federal highways. On the bypass around Bad Wildungen and Odershausen, the federal highway 485 and the federal highway 253 run on the same route. Before the construction of the B 251 bypass around Sachsenhausen, the B 485 only began at today's intersection with the L 3200 in Sachsenhausen. In the 1980s, the B 485 was relocated to a length of around 2.5 km between Sachsenhausen and Netze, making three bridges over the parallel railway line superfluous. The bypasses around Altwildungen, Bad Wildungen and Odershausen were also completed in the 1980s. After the construction of the B 3 bypass Bad Zwesten, the B 485 took over a section of the L 3074 between the intersection with the old B 3 and the new bypass road.
Between the connection to the B 251 and Braunau it has two lanes and is well developed; south of Giflitz on 1.2 km crawl lane for traffic towards Bad Wildungen, north of Braunau on 1.0 km crawl lane for traffic towards Bad Zwesten. Between Braunau and the connection to the B 3, the B 485 has two lanes, is relatively narrow and winding.
