The Secret Service has mandated temporary road closures and adjusted traffic patterns around Mar-a-Lago this weekend for President Trump's visit.

Starting at 8 a.m. Friday, March 3, 2017, all forms of travel will be prohibited on S. Ocean Boulevard between S. County Road and Southern Boulevard.

The travel restrictions will also continue eastward to the ocean.

Residents living in the area will be granted access with proper identification.

The restrictions will be in place until President Trump departs on Sunday afternoon.

To avoid delays, if you are north of midtown, use the Royal Park (Middle) Bridge and Flagler Memorial (North) Bridge. If you are south of midtown, please use the Lake Worth Bridge to avoid congestion around Mar-a-Lago.
