Construction has started on a helipad for President Donald Trump's Marine One chopper at Mar-a-Lago, his "Winter White House" in Palm Beach.

The Palm Beach Post reports that a recently-dug 40- to 50-foot-wide dirt pit is being fitted with a steel-reinforced cement platform to serve as the landing area of the presidential aircraft, which can weigh up to 28,000 pounds.

The helipad, expected to be ready by late spring or early summer, will help relieve some of the traffic congestion that plagues Palm Beach each time Trump visits his lush 20-acre, oceanfront property

The Post says some of Trump's neighbors on the tiny island of multi-millionaires, have objected to noise the large helicopter will undoubtedly make landing and taking off.

Mar-a-Lago, which Trump bought and transformed into a country club in 1995, was built in the 1920s by financier E.F. Hutton and his wife, Post cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post.
