Today, the U.S. Transportation Secretary will be here in the bluff city.
It is one of Secretary Anthony Foxx's first official trips since his confirmation by the U.S. Senate in late June.
We are told the visit will include a MATA bus tour of the "Main Street to Main Street" project ending at the Harahan Bridge.
This project got a major grant by the Transportation Department.
Once completed it will allow cyclists and runners to cross the Mississippi River to the river's levees on the Arkansas side.
Memphis Mayor A C Wharton and Congressman Steve Cohen will be his tour guides for the day.
