Looks great!

Two questions;

1. Will US Aircraft Carriers be able to pass through the canal now?

2. When the new canal sections are finished will the old sections be expanded aswell or will they remain with their present size?

Not sure about aircraft carriers, but the existing canal locks will continue to operate, remaining their present size.
