President Obama during a 9/11 ceremony in 2011. / USA TODAY

President Obama will head to New York this week to push for more infrastructure spending, do some campaign fundraising and dedicate a new 9/11 memorial and museum.

The president and first lady Michelle Obama leave Wednesday on the trip that begins with an infrastructure speech at the Tappan Zee Bridge in the New York City area.

Obama has called on Congress to approve more infrastructure projects as a way to spur the economy and improve deteriorating roads, bridges and airports across the country.

Also on Wednesday, the president will headline fundraising events for the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

The 9/11 ceremony is Thursday, as Obama speaks at the dedication of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum.

The president and Mrs. Obama also will tour the facility honoring the recovery from the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center.

The Obamas return to the White House on Thursday.
