The president and Air Force One is expected to land at Palm Beach International Airport sometime next week, so drivers should be prepared for road blocks around Southern Boulevard when he arrives.

It’s unclear exactly when President Trump will arrive, but we should know more details in the next few days.

This will be the Trump's first visit in months to Palm Beach County, and his first Thanksgiving here as president.

Drivers can expect to see similar road closures and boating restrictions that occurred earlier this year around Mar-a-Lago.

Palm Tran and Palm Tran Connection are advising the community of possible substantial delays and detours due to Trump’s planned visit around the Thanksgiving holiday.

Earlier this year, Trump hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Mar-a-Lago.

As president, Trump has spent all or part of more than 75 days at properties he owns in Florida, Virginia and New Jersey.
