Faster, greener and more cost-effective building? Under the best of circumstances, you may wind up with two out of the three. To combine all three? You might as well be asking for a unicorn. Prescient, a software and structural system manufacturing company, is out to change that.

Vacant buildings are coming down and a new bridge is going up along Canoga Avenue as part of the $216 million extension of the Orange Line between Canoga Park and Chatsworth. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority finished acquiring properties — including tire shops, metal supply stores and used-car dealerships — along the east side of Canoga Avenue in May and those buildings are now being demolished to make room for the four-mile-long busway.
The Orange Line extension will create a landscaped busway and parallel bike path from the terminus near Victory Boulevard and Canoga Avenue, north to the Chatsworth Metrolink Station. Stations will be located at Sherman Way, Roscoe Boulevard and Nordhoff Street. It will connect with the busway that opened in October 2005, a 14-mile route between Warner Center and the Red Line subway station in North Hollywood.
