The 1900 Hay-Pauncefote Treaty authorized construction of a U.S.-controlled canal through Central America, which would drastically reduce travel time between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. To build the canal, workers used specially-adapted equipment that had originally been designed for the railroad industry. Construction of the Panama Canal began in 1904 and was completed ten years later.
