It appears from a Google search and a Warm Showers contact that you can cross the river using a narrow sidewalk at the I-55 bridge. You end up at E H Crump Park in Memphis. To get to the bridge access at the east end of West Broadway you have to take a trail/gravel road that wanders under the bridge to the north and then comes back under the bridge to the south.

Can anyone verify this? I can see it on GoogleMaps and my information seems correct. Looking for some verification?

The Harahan Bridge is still not open (will offer both peds/cycling only traffic), I believe late this year.

I crossed a few years ago here but I accessed Crump Park via Metal Museum Drive as I was coming from the south and then heading west.  Can't say is still feasible now.  I would avoid doing at night or within an hour of dusk or dawn.  Seemed a bit sketchy to me but it worked.
Happy trails and may the wind be at your back!
