Long Pond, Monroe County - Fans are gearing up for race weekend in the Poconos.  The GoBowling.Com 400 takes place Sunday, but as NASCAR fans look forward to all of the fun, they don't care as much for the traffic leading up to the Tricky Triangle.

A study by East Stroudsburg University predicts Pocono Raceway will bring $277million to the area this year, but you hear it time and time again, the traffic there during race weekend stinks. Good news, that's going to change at the end of this year.

In March, Governor Tom Corbett announced a plan to widen Route 115 between Route 903 in Blakeslee to the Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, pledging $5million in transportation funds.  The project is set to start later this year.
