PORT: Panama Canal
Lane closure at Pedro Miguel Locks

Beginning Tuesday, April 29, 2014, at 0001 hours through Thursday, May 1,
2014, at 2400 hours, dredging operations will be conducted at the Gatun
Lake entrance on the east side of Perdro Miguel Locks between the center
wall and the east prism linem and north of the center wall. This dredging
work is necessary for the removal of shoals, which have become critical due
to the low level of Gatun Lake. During this period, the East lane at Pedro
Miguel Locks will be closed to allow the dredging equipment to operate
uninterrupted.

The West lane of Pedro Miguel Locks will also require an outage for
dredging operations, tentatively scheduled for May 9-11, 2014.

As a result, and in accordance with the rules governing the Transit
Reservation System, Condition 2 will be in effect from Tuesday, April 29,
2014, through Thursday, May 1, 2014.

Applications for reserved transits while Condition 2 is in effect will be
received beginning at 0900 hours on Saturday, April 26, 2014. The
Just-in-Time (JIT) slots available for supers will be reduced during this
period to one slot per direction. Nevertheless, JIT slots previously
confirmed will be honored. The JIT slots available for regular vessels
transiting without restrictions, as well as the booking slot available
through the Auction Process, and the slots available for regular vessels
less than 300 feet in LOA, will continue to be offered during this period.
