The Kenrick Avenue Park and Ride[1][2] is a 750-space parking ramp in Lakeville, Minnesota. The three-level park-and-ride ramp is located on the site of a former Minnesota Department of Transportation weigh station, on the east side of Interstate Highway 35 at Kenrick Avenue and 167th Street West, about two miles south of the point where I-35E and I-35W divide. In January, 2009, the Metropolitan Council awarded a $6.6 million contract to Adolphson & Peterson Construction to build the station,[3] which began serving customers on September 28, 2009.

Northbound buses access the freeway directly from the station. Buses on Metro Transit's Express Bus Route 467[4] now serve commuters destined for downtown Minneapolis, and the station will eventually serve as the southern terminus of the planned METRO Orange Line, a bus rapid transit service to downtown Minneapolis.
