The largest infrastructure project since the waterway’s original construction, the Panama Canal Expansion Program, is now 96 percent complete.

The Pacific access channel is 99 percent complete and the third set of locks is now 95 percent complete.

When fully complete, the new set of locks will double the capacity of the Panama Canal, creating a new lane of traffic and allowing larger ships, the New Panamax size, to travel the canal.

Canal de Panamá – La Ruta, a government organization, has just released on its facebook page this beautiful photo from the Panama Canal expansion program.

The project is expected to be inaugurated in the second quarter of 2016.
