All travelers who take the Egg Harbor Exit between 5 and 6 p.m. won’t have to pay.

Pete Ciarrocchi, the founder and CEO of Chickie’s & Pete’s, says he wants to honor his family’s military tradition by paying for tolls for Memorial Day weekend.

“My dad and my uncles were all in the military,” said Ciarrocchi. “In fact, my Uncle George, who was my restaurant mentor, won the Silver Star for bravery. He was quite the guy and I couldn’t think of a better way to honor him.”
