New Schedule For Centennial Bridge Starting Monday, 11 April 2011

Cars & TransportationStarting Monday, 11 April 2011, the schedule for the use of the Centennial Bridge will be as follows: - From 5:30 am to 9:00 am, two lanes from the interior of the country towards Panama City and one lane leaving Panama City towards the interior. From 9:30 am to 3:30 pm there will be lanes open in both directions. From 4:00 pm to 5:00 am the next day, there will be only one lane open from the interior of the country towards Panama City, and two lanes from Panama City towards the interior. On Sunday, 17 April 2011, there will be lanes open in both directions all day. The Public Works Department also reported that as of Monday 11 April, the passage of heavy equipment will be prohibited over the Bridge of the Americas, and they can only use the Centennial Bridge, after 9:30 am. (Telemetro)

Editor's Comment: After the mudslides in December 2010 that damaged the access road to the bridge, there have only been two lanes available for traffic and the MOP would mostly open the bridge in either one direction or another. Now it appears they have opened a third lane and are prepared to have two flowing one way and one in the other. So, it looks like no matter what time you want to cross, there will be at least one lane open in the direction you want to go, which is an improvement.
