President Obama plans to travel to Western Pennsylvania on Tuesday, the White House announced.

The White House on Wednesday did not release details of the visit, beyond saying he'll be here for an event related to the economy. It will be Obama's third visit to the Pittsburgh area this year.

Obama last traveled to the area on April 16, when he and Vice President Joe Biden spoke about job training at the Community College of Allegheny County's West Hills Center. Obama spoke at U.S. Steel's Irvin Plant in West Mifflin on Jan. 29, the day after delivering the State of the Union address.
