President Obama will visit U.S. Steel's Irvin Plant in West Mifflin on Wednesday to talk about the economy, following his State of the Union address Tuesday.

White House officials said further details about his visit, which they announced over the weekend, will be released this week. Obama will also be visiting Prince George's County in Maryland on Wednesday, and the Milwaukee and Nashville areas on Thursday.

In the past, such as during the 2009 Group of 20 economic summit, Obama's visits focused on Pittsburgh's evolution beyond being defined by the steel industry. The Irvin Plant, according to U.S. Steel, produces sheet metal products from the steel slabs produced at the Edgar Thomson Plant in Braddock.
