Cape Gazette observes the Panama Canal’s just completed $5 billion expansion

September 15, 2017

Marian and Wayne Kirklin, seen here at the new Gatun Locks, recently spent a week in Panama as Road Scholars gathering material for a course about the canal. The Panama Canal expansion project, also called the Third Set of Locks Project, doubled the capacity of the Canal by adding a new lane of traffic allowing for a larger number of ships, and increasing the width and depth of the lanes and locks allowing larger ships to pass. Wayne teaches at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, University of Delaware in Lewes.
