    Michigan (WXYZ) -- A big announcement is expected from General Motors President Mark Reuss later this morning.

A $150 million investment at the Flint Assembly plant is being reported by multiple media outlets, including Reuters and Auto News.

The news comes on the heels of a February announcement that 1,000 jobs would be relocated to the plant as they ramp up production of trucks, including the new 2020 Chevy Silverado HD.

Over the past year, GM has been working toward plant closures at five sites in a process they’ve dubbed “un-allocating plants.” That includes the Lordstown, Ohio plant which the company is working to sell right now. The facility in Hamtramck was expected to be shutdown soon, but was given a seven-month extension earlier this year — that would leave the plant open, along with it’s roughly 800 workers, until January.

The Flint Assembly plant opened in 1947 and has produced more than 13 million vehicles. It currently builds a number of GM’s trucks including the GMC Sierra pickup and light-duty Silverados.
