Traffic issues that Palm Beach County drivers have had to endure during President Donald Trump's visits may soon be alleviated.

Construction is underway for a helipad at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate on Palm Beach. 

Chopper 5 flew over the area Tuesday and spotted crews working on the grounds of the estate. 

 

The recently-approved helipad, which is 40 to 50 feet wide, will allow Trump to take Marine One once he lands at Palm Beach International Airport.  

This will help to clear up some of the congestion that drivers have had to battle on Southern Boulevard and Interstate 95 during the president's visits.
