While CalTrans expects heavy delays in and out of North Los Angeles County on I-5 beginning today through New Years Day (plan ahead), the Valley gets to celebrate more Orange Line sweetness (prepare to salivate).

Today at 10:30 a.m. marks the official opening of the new Canoga Station at Van Owen and, well, Canoga (duh). It comes packaged with a 611-space Park & Ride Lot, the largest in the West Valley. But more importantly, it sets forth a launching point for North and South extensions of the service.

We're not sure what the Southern extension is needed for (after all, the next Orange line stop is the Warner Center where you can catch the Metro 750 that takes you down to Ventura and back across the valley to the Universal Red Line station), but a Northern extension that would connect the 101 and 118 freeways parallel to Topanga Cyn Rd. cannot hurt.

Of course, if it would go that far, it definitely needs its own color. How about the Indigo Line?
