Panama Canal expansion is good for Mount Vernon

Bob and Donna McFarland and Saundra and Charles Dunn  at the Panama Canal construction siteBob and Donna McFarland and Saundra and Charles Dunn visited the Panama Canal construction site. A major expansion of the Canal is underway and will double the amount of cargo that can move through it to Texas and East Coast ports.

The trip was organized by TEX-21, an organization dedicated to improving the transportation system in Texas. The Panama Canal expansion is just one of the opportunities for economic growth in Texas that will require an investment in highway, rail, and port facilities. For more details about the expansion, see the December 12 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
