VIDEO: Panama Canal Expansion – September 2015

The largest infrastructure project since the waterway’s original construction, the Panama Canal Expansion Program, will soon become a reality.

With the project 93% completed, the Panama Canal Expansion has reached its final stretch.

The massive Expansion Program will create a new lane of traffic along the Canal through the construction of a new set of locks, increasing the waterway’s capacity.

The new locks will have three chambers, water-saving basins, lateral filling and emptying system & rolling gates.
