President Donald Trump returns Friday evening to Palm Beach, and his motorcade could hit Southern Boulevard during rush hour.

Based on flight restrictions, the president should land at Palm Beach International Airport shortly after 5:15 p.m.

In the past, the president has traveled along Southern Boulevard to get from the airport to Mar-a-Lago. As the motorcade makes the trip, authorities close Southern Boulevard to vehicle traffic.


This means drivers could see delays Friday and then again on Sunday when the president is scheduled to return to Washington, D.C.

This is the second weekend in a row the president plans to be at his Mar-a-Lago club on Palm Beach. This time, he will welcome Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. NBC reports Abe will arrive at about 1:45 p.m. Friday.

The two plan on playing golf together Saturday morning. The Federal Aviation Administration will enforce flight restrictions near Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

You can expect some roadblocks, probably along I-95, as the president travels from Palm Beach to Jupiter.

On Palm Beach, authorities will close A1A from Southern Boulevard to South County Road for traffic all weekend long.

The U.S. Coast Guard will enforce boating restrictions around Mar-a-Lago from 3:30 p.m. Friday until 11:59 p.m. Monday.

No boats are allowed in the Lake Worth Lagoon approximately 1,000 feet in any direction from Mar-a-Lago.

Boaters are not allowed to slow down or stop in waters outside 1,000 feet from Mar-a-Lago in the lagoon and Atlantic Ocean.

Based on flight restrictions at Palm Beach International, we expect President Trump to depart before 10 p.m. Sunday. 

On Thursday, Palm Beach leaders discussed how to best handle traffic restrictions on the island during presidential visits.
