Bus Breaks Down on Gatun Locks Bridge

Canal Daily Operation A bus from the Colón - Costa Abajo route broke down on the vehicular bridge of the Gatun Locks at the Atlantic entrance of the Panama Canal. Apparently, the bus broke down and got stuck on the bridge. In order to be able to open the way, another bus had to push the broken down bus off of the vehicular bridge, the only land connection to the Costa Abajo of Colon. (Telemetro)

Editor's Comment:If you've ever driven over to Ft. Sherman on the Atlantic side of Panama then you've been across this vehicular bridge at the Gatun Locks of the Panama Canal. Supposedly there are plans to build a new vehicular bridge over that area of the Canal, as well as to expand a highway to connect Colon to Changuinola in Bocas del Toro. Pushing a road up that coast would dramatically increase property values in the region.
