The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) is currently undergoing maintenance and expansion projects on the Panama Canal. This project includes progress analyses and design elements related to the Borinquen Dam 1E and the Pacific canal entrance. The goals of this project is to achieve four design oriented objectives including: 1) recommendations for the improvement of the dredging operations at the Pacific canal entrance; 2) the design process for producing as-built grout profile drawings along Dam 1E; 3) the compaction and testing specifications for the clay core of Dam 1E and; 4) a progress and cost analysis including recommendations for Dam 1E. Results from this paper provided the ACP with information and recommendations to improve the functionality of several operations.
