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 began at 8 a.m. Thursday.

According to the White House, Air Force One was scheduled to depart Washington, D.C., at 4:20 p.m. and land at Palm Beach International Airport around 6:35 p.m. However, the president was running a bit behind and left later than scheduled.

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.
