Work crews set up a stage, risers, a sound system, a satellite dish and more on Sunday in anticipation of an event to be held on the state Capitol steps this Tuesday, according to multiple workers on site.

Late Monday afternoon, the governor's office sent out a press release indicating that the event will be held to announce an economic project with Ford Motor Company.

The release called it "a major economic announcement about Ford’s continuing commitment to American manufacturing and leading the electric vehicle revolution."

The site included multiple trailers for crew members to the immediate east of the Capitol building and a large satellite dish placed near the rear of the Capitol.

The main stage, with a large backdrop and space for several television cameras, as well as an extensive sound system is currently set up about midway up the steps.
