The South Jersey Transportation Authority will ring in Memorial Day weekend with an hour of toll-free passage through the Egg Harbor plaza on the Atlantic City Expressway.

From 5 to 6 p.m. Friday, drivers heading east through the plaza will not have to pay the toll, according to the SJTA. Local restaurant chain Chickie’s & Pete’s will pick up the tab.

The hour of gratis fares follows a 100 Days of Summer celebration from noon to 4 p.m. at Farley Plaza on the expressway, offering free samples of food and drink, State Police K-9 and equipment demonstrations, a helicopter landing, animals from Funny Farm Rescue Sanctuary in Mays Landing and a live broadcast by WIP Sports Radio.

“We welcome another 100 days of summer and wish all those who use our roadway and airport safe travels and happy memories,” SJTA Executive Director Stephen F. Dougherty said in a statement.
