With Saturday’s rain closing the Sunset Symphony, the Memphis in May International Festival ended its month-long stay in Tom Lee Park.

But the end of the festival means the beginning of a pilot program that will keep the southbound lanes of Riverside Drive closed to automobile traffic from Beale to Carolina streets.

What are normally the southbound lanes will be for bicyclists and pedestrians, and what are normally the northbound lanes will operate as the north and southbound lanes during the trial period.
