Traffic woes expected with Trump visit


In anticipation of President Trump’s visit next week, Palm Tran and Palm Tran Connection — the county’s public transportation system - is advising riders of possible substantial delays and detours.

Previous visits have resulted in lengthy road closures, especially along Dixie Highway and Southern Boulevard, as the president travels back and forth from Palm Beach International Airport to Mar-a-Lago. There may be little notice of these closures and congestion is also likely.
