Trump expected to arrive today for Easter weekend
President Donald Trump is expected to arrive after 5:15 p.m. today and leave before 5 p.m. on Easter Sunday, according to an alert issued by the Federal Aviation Administration.
The process of establishing checkpoints and road closures in and around Mar-A-Lago will begin no later than 6 a.m. today.
Expect delays in the area through Sunday. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes.
During the closure period, all forms of travel, including pedestrian traffic, are prohibited on South Ocean Boulevard from the intersection of South County Road to Southern Boulevard.
The travel restrictions also will extend eastward to the ocean. Marine security zones will be in effect during this period.
Residents living south of the South Ocean Boulevard and South County Road intersection will be granted access with proper credentials.
First lady Melania Trump and son Barron, who arrived with the president last Friday, remained at Mar-a-Lago this week.
The Trump family traditionally spends Easter at Mar-a-Lago and attends services at The Episcopal Church of Bethesda-bythe-Sea.
Jane Justice and Mike Sims of West Palm Beach await President Trump’s arrival in February.
