Panama to learn in December on canal

Friday, November 20, 2015

The Panama Canal Authority expects to find out next month whether repair and reinforcement of concrete gate sills can be completed in time to avoid delaying the scheduled April opening of the canal’s historic expansion.

“At this point in time, we have been told by the contractor he’s going to meet that April date,” Manuel E. Benitez, the canal authority’s deputy administrator, told a Containerization & Intermodal Institute conference.
