OCEAN CITY — Ocean City has begun repairs to eroded parts of the system of dunes along the town’s beaches.

Officials plan to patch the town’s eroded dune system with about 50,000 cubic yards of sand. Work on the project began Tuesday.

The beach lost hundreds of thousands of cubic yards of sand during a November storm.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources said crews will use sand that has built up on some parts of the beach to fill in other, more eroded areas of the dune system. Crews will wait until the spring to pump hundreds of thousands of cubic yards of sand onto the beach for further repairs.

City Engineer Terry McGean said the work could take up to 60 days.
