Beautiful, day or night

I've been under the bridge several times but still can't stop photographing it. Seems like every angle has its own cool view.

A Very Attractive Structure
Mar 2020
As we approached this structure it was not only bigger than we imagined but an architectural marvel. It is truly something to behold, and must be seen to believe. If you’re ever in Panama City be sure to put it on your list of things to see.

See the Canal at a distance

Grove over the bridge leaving town and returning. Nice view of the locks at a distance. Lots of traffic, depending on the time of day.

Beautiful functional bridge
Jul 2019 • Friends
We crossed it twice in a van and got great views of the canal, shipping, and the old bridge. This is a heavy traffic bridge on the Pan American Highway. Its value is its function, not as a tourist attraction.

Best way to see the canal for free
Jun 2019 • Couples
Great view, but no place to stop and take photos. I think this is intentional because they want all tourists to pay overpriced entrance fees at the Miraflores locks. The bridge actually has better views of the canal and no tourist trap features. There is no toll at the bridge so we went over it several times to fully appreciate the breathtaking view.

impressive bridge
May 2019 • Family
Yes, it is an impressive bridge out in the green of the jungle. If you come closer you see the nice construction, best viewed from the canal.

History!
Feb 2019 • Couples
I had wondered what would happen in stormy weather inside the canal. I was told the only way the canal could be closed is because of fog. Our gloomy and cloudy weather did not mean fog so on we went further southwest into the canal. On our way towards the Pedro Miguel Locks we passed under the Centennial Bridge, the second bridge that was built across the canal. Amazingly this bridge crosses the Gaillard Cut. If you don't know the history of this dangerous excavation, do read about it. It will impress you greatly. Also interesting, this is the bridge that carries six lanes of the Pan-American Highway, the ancient route that connects the American continents.

The newer one
Mar 2019 • Friends
The Centennial bridge was built to relieve heavy traffic on the Bridge of Americas, which was built first close to PC center. The Centennial is further inland and you can see it in a distance from the top of Ancon hill (see that review) or if you sail the canal on one of the tours. Like everything else here it's an engineering marvel.
