a must see when you are in Colon. while visiting for business had the opportunity to enjoy lunch at Gatun overlooking the lake, locks and new construction. truly an amzing engineering feat. lunch was good, but the real bonus is looking down into what will become the post Panamax 3rd locks and looking from the observation platform out to the atlantic side and also seeing the lake and picturing how they are builidng the new lock
if you can drive down to the small bridge (single lane) that crosses directly in front of the final lock gates and if you are luck sitting perched above you will be 100,000+ tons of water and vessel/cargo ready to be lowed to the Atlantic sea level so their voyage can continue
