QUIZ: What Do You Know about the Panama Canal?

The Panama Canal has been called the world’s greatest engineering project from the time it was completed in 1914. Its construction realized a long-standing dream to connect the Atlantic and Pacific oceans that dated to early Spanish colonization of Central and South America. The design is a combination of canals, locks and man-made lakes that provide passage for large ocean-going vessels.

By the beginning of the 21st century, the canal was constrained by size as larger post-Panamax vessels could not squeeze through the locks. A $5.4-billion expansion large enough to fit the new ships was completed in 2016.
