    A highway ramp south of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport reopened Friday morning after repairs were made to a buckle, that created a large, hazardous speed bump in the road.

    The buckle appeared Thursday in the southbound ramp to Texas state Highway 360, accessible from both the south exit of D/FW Airport's Spur 97 and the westbound state Highway 183.

    Before the road was closed for repairs, the pavement was raised approximately eight to 10 inches and vehicles driving at a normal rate of speed went slightly airborne and lost traction with the pavement.

    There are no reports of any injuries.

    NBC 5 Photojournalist Kevin Stewart drove over the buckled road to show the problem from a driver's perspective.

    On Friday a large patch of new pavement was scene at the site of the buckle. The road reopened around 11:30 a.m.

    NBC 5's Holley Ford, Ben Russell and Frank Heinz contributed to this report.
