Dingell, the longest-serving member of Congress, died last Thursday at the age of 92.

He had recently entered hospice care after a cancer diagnosis.

His wife, Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.), has served as the representative for his former district following his retirement in 2015.

Members of Congress will be given the chance to pay their respects on Tuesday as the hearse carrying Dingell makes a final trip past the Capitol on the East Plaza.

Another funeral service is set to take place in D.C. on Thursday.
