Panama Canal:

See those thick black lines in the middle of the picture? The topmost one is the couple of feet (!) of clearance this container ship has as it goes through the locks. A new canal is being dug next to the existing canal; the new “ditch” will be able to handle the bigger “post-Panamax” ships now afloat.
