Panama Canal

The Panama Canal (Spanish: Canal de Panamá) is a 77-kilometre (48 mi) ship canal in Panama that joins the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean and is a key conduit for international maritime trade. Built from 1904 to 1914, annual traffic has risen from about 1,000 ships in the canal's early days to 14,702 vessels in 2008. It has been named one of the seven modern wonders of the world by the American Society of Civil Engineers.Excerpted from Panama Canal on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
