With the arrival of President-Elect Donald Trump for the Thanksgiving Holiday, traffic control is in place around Mar-a-Lago.
A heavy police, Secret Service, and Coast Guard presence is at the Mar-a-Lago service entrance just west of the traffic circle on the Southern Blvd. access to the island.
Large electronic signs are at the intersection of S. County Rd. and A1A and south of there on A1A near Mar-a-Lago.
Mr. Trump arrived Tuesday evening. A temporary flight restriction is scheduled to take place over Mar-a-Lago beginning at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and ending at 11:59 p.m. Sunday.
The Shiny Sheet is reporting:
Public Safety Director Kirk Blouin said there will be some traffic disruption while Mr. Trump is on the island, though he declined to specify when that would be or to specify further on those disruptions.
“For security reasons, there will be restricted traffic where he is located, whether he is moving or he’s in a permanent location,” Mr. Blouin said. “But we’re certainly not going to post or advertise any of that information.”
Bath & Tennis Club sent a reminder to members expecting to attend Thanksgiving dinner to bring identification and to expect delays because of a roadblock near Mar-a-Lago.
It is suggested to avoid the area, unless you are prepared for delays, for the duration of Mr. Trump's visit.
