To the left is Gatun Lake, to the right the Caribbean Sea. Notice two related bits of construction: above and to the left of the locks with the lower Chagres River flowing beyond, the work around the Spillway to raise the level of Gatun Lake. On the center right of the photo, work to build the new Atlantic Side bridge, a costly part of the canal expansion that has been kept “off of the project” so as to misrepresent the expansion’s true cost.
