For this activity they will be using the route: Leaving the Port of Balboa – Northern Corridor – Centennial Bridge – Inter American Highway – CocolĂ­. It was reported for this activity they have received the proper permits from the Ground Transit and Transportation Authority, to move cargo from Monday to Sunday from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm. Grupo Unidos por el Canal, S.A. (GUPCSA) apologizes for any inconvenience caused by this movement of cargo. (Estrella)

Editor’s Comment: Apparently these things are too big and heavy to go over the Bridge of the Americas, so they have to take the long way around over the Centennial Bridge.
