Panama Canal Expansion Project
The program for expansion consists of the construction of two new sets of locks, one on the Pacific and one on the
Atlantic side of the Canal. Each lock will have three chambers and each chamber will have three water reutilization
basins. The project entails the widening and deepening of existing navigational channels in Gatun Lake and the
deepening of Culebra Cut. Proposed completion dates are 2014-2015. See a live webcam of the project progress.
The collection is founded largely from the source document collections of the Panama Canal Museum, the University of
Florida George A. Smathers Libraries' Latin American &Caribbean Collection, Government Documents Collection, and
the Map &Imagery Library.
