According to this, there is an expansion project for the Corredor Sur highway in Panama City. There are four components:

1. The number of lanes of the Corredor Sur will be increased from four to six.
2. The Avenida Ernesto T. Lefevre will be extended out into the sea to connect to the Corredor Sur.
3. The construction of a 44-acre landfill, 27 lots may be sold for commercial or residential use.
4. A new viaduct.

Is there any news concerning fulfillment of this missing link?:

So far there are no serious plans for building a highway through the Darien Gap. Many Panamanian officials are actually against building a road through the Darien Gap because of drug trafficking concerns and the fact that FARC and other guerilla/paramilitary control still control much of the territory on the Colombian side. Building a road would also be very expensive since it has to traverse through some mountainous terrain in addition to swamps and wetlands which many environmentalists oppose as well.

The perfect South American "stereotypes": Drug trafficking lords controlling entire countries, guerrillas in "Che" style hiding in the jungle, along with environmentalists who makes themselves devour by anacondas .

Nonetheless, the situation have changed dramatically since the 1990's, from a ruined state ruled fire & blood by Medellin and Cali drug barons, Colombia is now a Latin American powerhouse, quickly rising and becoming a major South American economy. Actually, drug traffickers are extremely smart, they are using the Darien Gap as a "hub", a place to hide their stuff, to pass with almost no controls, have illegal airports and ports there with illegal planes and jets (extremely dangerous for air traffic), they are very imaginative and the worldwide drug deal have never been so flourishing. It's just to say that the Gap is not reducing their activities at all, nor it is preventing them to distribute their "merchandise" North of it, quite the contrary in fact. Further, I would be more afraid by Panama's northern Central American "drug intermediary" neighbors that have much more "delicate" situation than in most of South America, are extremely violent and unstable with the highest homicide rates in the world. As for the guerrillas, they are also in Central America as well, and leaving a "no man's land" is helping them a lot, as they can hide, put in place training camps, most of all, they have an ideal location for weapons and military equipment dropping zone, as no one will bother them.
IMHO, leaving this "Gap" wild can only contribute and encourage such illegal activities, with no prospect for the future, and unnecessarily cut huge relationship potential between Latin American countries for wacky reasons.

Environmentalists are not "dictators" AFAIK, the can't impose to an entire continent "isolationism". On the other hand, seeing the Darien Gap from a map and satellite perspective, there are many places where a road could be built with low effects for the jungle. Moreover, many technical structures such as bridges and tunnels could bring to almost zero the environmental impact. Beside, techniques to build such road are existing since quite a long time. Sure it will cost money, but is this 60 miles missing link of the Panamerican Highway not worth it?

As far as I know, drug trafficking, political instability, violence and guerrillas are not a problem neither in Panama, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua. In Honduras and all the countries to the north, right there you have problems with the large Maras, and other organizations coming even from the north of Mexico like Los Zetas.

Anyway, I don't think that constructing a route over the Darien Gap will stop this issue. What is needed is more cooperation among the governments in order to improve control on land, air and sea routes.

Indeed. Panama is not El Salvador or Mexico. In 2012 it had 17.2 intentional homicides per 100,000 people, for 39.9 in Guatemala or 41.2 in El Salvador (source), and different sources state that crime is going down. It's the third safest country in Central America; which is not saying very much, but it's far from the Central American stereotype.
