SACRAMENTO-

The Arden Arcade neighborhood is bracing for up to 25,000 visitors a day to the Del Paso Country Club for the 2015 US Senior Open golf championship.

The organizers held a neighborhood meeting to outline plans to shuttle spectators from Cal Expo where there will be free parking.

Still with so many people expected to the event some people are bound to park in residential neighborhoods. Several streets will be closed for the event which will allow for safer pedestrian and bicycle traffic.

Residents were told at the meeting that spectators can park whereever public parking is allowed, like in front of homes.  But they are also fee to charge people for parking on their property.

Residents were also told that law enforcement patrols would be increased  in neighborhoods to counter any possible crime issues.

Still organizers hope people will use the free shuttles to minimize traffic.

The event will be one of the largest sporting events ever to come to the region pumping an estimated $18 million into the economy and with 25,000 hotel room days expected.
