Buckled Ramp to Southbound Texas 360 Ramp Reopened

Drivers on westbound Texas 183 can still take the exit ramp to Texas 360 south

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. [[306195951,C]]

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.
