All shortcuts listed from East to West involving 3rd Street
For detailed information concerning buildings and landmarks listed below, see Downtown Paradise.
- When driving Westbound on 3rd Street, keeping to your right with the traffic flow, and you will see an opening that enables you to cut the North-Eastern corner of the 3rd and Webster Avenue junction. Taking this shortcut will point you Northbound on Webster. Note that the reverse operation can be executed when traveling Southbound on Webster. This shortcut is useful for inexperienced drivers, as this path keeps you away from the sometimes busy traffic and ensures you a safe passage along Webster.
- When traveling Eastbound on 3rd Street, there is a shortcut going through an under construction building block. The shortcut starts at the 3rd and Glancey Avenue intersection, on its North-Eastern corner, directly opposite to the Downtown Park's North-Eastern entry. Taking the shortcut effectively takes you to the Andersen Street and Webster intersection, letting you freely choose your next heading. (Northbound on Webster or Eastbound on Andersen) Ultimately you can access the I-88 thanks to the on and off ramps located on Andersen Street.
- Note: this shortcut splits in two. Taking a left on the path will take you up a ramp and finally to a Super Jump and a Paradise Billboard. Taking the right will bring you down to street level. Both ways take you to the same junction.
- When traveling Westbound on 3rd Street, after the Webster Avenue intersection, you will see the Spined Shark to your left on the south side of the road. A few meters away there is an opening letting you cut the South-Eastern corner of the 3rd and Glancey junction, which will point you Southbound on Glancey. Naturally, the reverse operation is possible when traveling Northbound on Glancey.
- When traveling Eastbound on 3rd Street, on the Root Avenue intersection, (the South-Eastern corner of the junction to your right) you will see the Downtown Park's North-Western entry. Entering the park and following the paved path under the bridge will effectively take you to the 2nd Street and Glancey Avenue intersection. From then on you are free to choose your next heading (either Southbound on Glancey, or Eastbound on 2nd Street).
When heading Westbound on 3rd Street, at the 3rd and Glancey Avenue intersection lies the Downtown Park's North-Eastern entry. Taking this shortcut and driving through the park will safely take you to the 2nd Street and Root Avenue intersection. This leaves you to decide your next heading (either Westbound on 2nd Street, or Southbound on Root Avenue).
When traveling Eastbound on 3rd Street, right after Paradise Square, you will see a large arch-like entrance to a commercial building, which is most likely a mall. If you take the shortcut, you will find yourself on the Root Avenue and Andersen Street intersection, heading Eastbound on Andersen.
Between the Hamilton Avenue intersection and Lambert Parkway intersection, you will eventually drive over some tracks. Making a hard left or right onto the tracks will take you on a North to South portion of the Railroad which holds a number of ramps and jumps.
- Note: It is likely that these tracks are part of the Crystal Summit or Big Surf section of the Paradise City Railroad.
When traveling Westbound on 3rd Street & approaching the dead-end Lambert Parkway junction, there is a paved path on your right (North side of the road) that will take you Northbound on the Parkway. The reverse itinerary is possible.
