Expansion of Panama Canal is nearly half way done
The Panama Canal’s expansion is finally beginning to look like a channel that will float some of the biggest ships in the world by mid-2015.
About 42 percent of the work on the massive new locks has been completed, and it’s by far the most costly and complicated part of the $5.25 billion project.
The old locks will still be in service, but the new ones will allow the canal to handle so-called post-Panamax ships.
