The Bridge of the Americas, Panama

The Bridge of the Americas crosses the Pacific approach to the Panama Canal at Balboa, near Panama City. It was built between 1959 and 1962 by the United States. The Bridge of Americas was a key part of the Pan-American Highway. It increased road traffic capacity across the canal. 

The bridge is an impressive sight, and a good view can be obtained from the Balboa Yacht Club, where many small boats tie up before or after transiting the canal. Throughout the day and night numerous vessels pass under the bridgr, either entering or departing from the Panama Canal. There are wide access ramps at each end, and pedestrian walkways on each side.

Thank you so much Pat for another great postcard and stamps as well! :)
