(WXYZ) — Construction on the NFL Draft stage began on Friday, with less than four weeks until the draft arrives.

We have a camera over the draft stage construction and we'll be live-streaming it as often as we can to show off the changes.

We'll also do timelapse videos, which you can see below, showing the progress being made.

The draft, which takes place from April 25-27 in Downtown Detroit, is set to bring hundreds of thousands of people to the Motor City over the course of three days.

Check out the timelapse video from Tuesday, April 2, below
