Progress on Panama Canal expansion

Contractors have completed the first monolith for the set of new locks on the Pacific side of the Panama Canal, according to the Journal of  Commerce. The monolith is the first of 46 structures to be built on the Pacific locks, which is part of a grand expansion of the Canal expected to be completed in 2014 and open to commercial traffic the following year.

The expansion will allow so-called “super post-Panamax” ships — with more than double the capacity of current Panamax ships — to traverse the Canal.    As reported previously on this blog, US ports have been preparing for the larger vessels for quite some time.
