Incomprehensible detour map

A street near me was closed for a few days not too long ago. In preparation the city sent us an amazingly detailed map... which didn't actually show which street was closed.

One of my pet peeves about it is that there is no compass bearing to let you know that north is approximately to the left. In fact there isn't even a legend to let you know what all the different lines and arrows mean.
