Panama Canal

This is a special area designed to bring you news about the expanded Panama Canal, and the events of Grand Opening on June 26, 2016.

In 2006, the People of Panama voted to approve a plan to expand the existing canal. Now ten years later, the expanded Canal, complete with much larger lock chambers, will officially be open for business.

The stated target for the grand opening was originally planned to be August of 2014, exactly one hundred years from the original opening, but the magnitude of the project, and a labor dispute or two, added an additional two years to the construction time.
