President Donald Trump will return to Palm Beach Thursday for the Easter holiday.

The FAA says air travel will be restricted from Thursday at 6:30 p.m. until Sunday at 4:30 p.m.

Road closures around Mar-a-Lago will begin at 8 a.m. Thursday.  

According to the White House, Air Force One will depart Washington, D.C., at 4:20 p.m. and land at Palm Beach International Airport around 6:35 p.m.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says it has spent $3.5 million on security for President Trump and his guests since he was elected president in November.


“It sounds like a lot. It is a lot. But, when you compare it to New York City, who is up to about $35 million, it’s not quite that much. It’s still a good chunk of change,” Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said in an interview posted on the PBSO Twitter feed.

The sheriff's office is hoping to be reimbursed for the costs.  Palm Beach County is considering a special tax be levied on the Mar-a-Lago property if the federal government doesn't reimburse costs.

Based on information provided by the Secret Service, road closures will begin on Thursday, April 13th at 8 a.m. The temporary road closures and adjusted traffic patterns around Mar-a-Lago will be in place through Sunday evening, April 16. All forms of travel, including pedestrian travel, will be prohibited on S. Ocean Blvd from the intersection of S. County Rd. to Southern Blvd.

The fastest designated route to West Palm Beach will be County Rd. to Royal Palm Way.

Additionally, effective immediately, while the President is in the Town of Palm Beach, the U.S. Secret Service has mandated commercial vehicle restrictions in the vicinity of Mar-A-Lago. Commercial vehicles is defined by the Secret Service for this purpose, to include anything larger than a passenger van.

Commercial vehicles are prohibited from traveling east on Southern Blvd. (SR 80/98) from the City of West Palm Beach into the Town of Palm Beach. Commercial vehicles traveling north on S. Ocean Blvd (A1A) from Lake Worth Road will be prohibited from continuing north of the 1200 block of S. Ocean Blvd. (near Emerald Lane). Information from the Town of Palm Beach.
