About

Construction of the 44-mile Atlantic City Expressway (ACE) began in 1962 to connect the Delaware Valley and Philadelphia metropolitan area with Atlantic City and other South Jersey shore communities. Its Atlantic City connection was completed in 1965. When the South Jersey Transportation Authority was established in 1991 by the New Jersey Legislature, it was given the responsibility for the Expressway, Atlantic City International Airport and tour-bus travel in Atlantic County. The Authority is also charged with promoting economic development in its six-county region through transportation-related projects.

The Expressway operates 47 miles of roadway as of 2001, when the Atlantic City Connector was completed. Operation and maintenance of the roadway is supported by tolls collected at two barrier toll plazas and five entrance and exit ramps. No state tax money is used. The Expressway provides safe and efficient access to Atlantic City, the Shore and rural and suburban communities along the Expressway. Its economic benefits can be seen through continued growth in both the casino-hotel and housing sectors in this region.

ACE is monitored by the SJTA's Emergency Services Patrol, which offers motorist aids for vehicles with flat tire, dead battery and other traveling issues.

Two service Plazas are available for motorists along ACE:

  • The Frank S. Farley Plaza rest area, located at the Expressway's midpoint (milepost 21.3), has a comprehensive list of amenities – among them a choice of fast-food restaurants, a gift shop, an ATM, New Jersey Tourist Information Center, picnic area with a dog walk, and a 24-hour gasoline station.
  • The Atlantic City Visitor Welcome Center and a gasoline station and mini-mart at the Intercept Parking Lot (milepost 3.5).
