Bridge of the Americas, Panama City

3.6
Drive across Bridge of the Americas, which spans the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal. Built by the United States in 1962, the bridge remains an important part of the Pan-American Highway, though it's no longer the only road crossing on the canal. The bridge serves only vehicles, so you cannot cross it on foot. If you don't wish to drive across the structure, see it from the land or from a boat or cruise ship.

  • A bridge was built by the Americans, this bridge is not used anymore, there is now a new bridge. You along as you drive to Panama City.

  • After 4 visits to panama I decided to go to meet the bridge of the americas, had good references, but when I arrived I found an abandoned place, missed much maintenance, order take out some pictures to the far of the bridge at the tab stop of the Bridge, high grass, lilpieza zero, a pity because it has a beautiful view but very neglected place
