Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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.

We passed under the Centennial Bridge as we transited the Panama Canal on the NCL Norwegian Star in February. This is the second major crossing of the Panama Canal.
The bridge is cable stayed design which is widely seen elsewhere now and has a total span of 3,451 feet. The main span is 1380 feet and is 262 ft above the Canal. There are two towers 604ft high and has six lanes of traffic across the Canal.
It is designed to withstand earthquakes which are seen in the canal area.
A great experience to pass under this during our transit.

Over the years of getting old I have looked at bridges in a different way.
This one is a good one.
Passed under on the way through the locks onto gaton Lake.

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.

The Centennial Bridge was the second bridge to be built over the Panama Canal in the year 2000. It connects Corridor Northe to the Pan-American High way.

This suspension bridge is an engineering marvel. Great views of bridge from the water during the Panama Canal transit.

The Panama Canal is an engineering feat, and so is the Centennial Bridge. It is one of the most beautiful bridges I have ever seen, and its size enormous and adds so much to the beautiful mountain landscape it highlights

If want to be on bridge over the canal this 2nd bridge built is not as in a big city, nor have as much traffic, still arrange for some else to drive.

The newer of two bridges spanning the Panama Canal, "Centenario" crosses the Canal at a point more northerly than "Puente las Americas" and thus leads one into the northern part of Panama City. Once there, you will find a vast number of shopping centers and bargain houses. The barrio of Dorado has a plethora of electronics retail and parts stores.

The bridge itself is hard to photograph unless you are down on the Avenida Omar Torrijos which is the route to the Miraflores Visitor Center, Balboa, and Albrook Mall.

Crossing the bridge from the PTY side is an alternative route to Arrijan, Chorrera, and the western provinces. It is an alternative route during peak drive time but congestion is still a watchword here.
