Project Details


The project entails designing and building a six-lane bridge over the Panama Canal, with two additional monorail lanes dedicated to the No. 3 metro line service. The bridge will reach heights of approximately 160m, connecting west Panama with Panama city, and increasing traffic and freight transport capacity. The bridge will also enable post-Panamax vessel navigability through the Panama Canal.
