As if the fog this morning didn't cause enough traffic delays, unexpected road closure has caused chaos on the roads of Dubai. Dubai Media office listed the roads that were to be closed, no real reason was given. 

At 2pm, Dubai Media Office updated their twitter account that roads are back to normal. Hopefully this evening won't be any worse than normal. 

Various roads around Dubai were closed from 11am to 12pm today,
