SXSW 2017 street closure map is, unsurprisingly, a doozy

Take a long look, then take the bus

Unlike last year’s taco- and tech-centric touchdown by the Obamas last year, there’s no presidential visit that we know of planned for SXSW 2017. So we don’t know if there will be a mayor-approved “Work From Home Day” this year.

Nevertheless, the street-closure map for the 2017 “Spring Festival Season,” as the city calls it, is just as intricate and daunting as ever. As in previous years, large swaths of downtown will be, um, challenging to navigate for at least some hours every day between March 10 and March 19.

Below is a list of closures courtesy of the Downtown Austin Alliance site, along with the map, which provides a more visceral experience of the impending traffic nuttiness.
