Watch the Construction of the Panama Canal Expansion in This Timelapse

By Casey Chan on at

The timelapse gets a little hectic and sometimes you don’t know what the hell is going on (unless you’re well-versed in canal building), but it’s just crazy to see a strip of land get carved out and then built out with concrete. Like, we just really gashed through the Earth and filled it up with water.

The Panama Canal expansion doubled the capacity of the canal and added a new lane. You can see it get built over a five-year period in the video below.
