The External Proton Beam Channel has seen intensive utilization since its installation at the Bevatron. A program now in progress will further enhance its versatility by increasing target areas, beam intensities, experimental floor area, shielding and utilities. We describe here the physical facilities, among which is a truly unique overhead crane design. The proton beam operation and characteristics are discussed in the Bevatron Experimenters Handbook.
