Expansion of Suez Canal

On August 6, 2015, a new expansion to the Suez Canal was opened. This expansion will allow easier and faster movement of 2-way traffic. At a cost of $6 billion, one year and 43,000 workers, the result is a 21 mile bypass along the center of the canal. Estimations are for reduced wait times of up to 8 hours.
