WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS - Events as extravagant as the PGA Tour are known to draw a massive crowd and residents of White Sulphur Springs said they notice the drastic increase, especially because the event grows every year.

Residents in White Sulphur Springs said they are used to the commotion during Greenbrier Classic week. While restaurants and hotels enjoy the spike in business, locals notice just how busy the downtown area gets. Plus, there is currently a construction site in the middle of Main Street. One resident, more patient than most, told Newswatch her feelings about the week’s traffic.

"Well it's a little bit heavier but it really doesn't bother me that much. They've got it where it's really flowing easy. Police officers from town are really doing a good job," said Regina Webster.

Police officers have heightened security on the roadways as they try to keep motorists and pedestrians safe.
