KURE BEACH, NC (WECT) - The project to rebuild sand dunes along the Kure Beach strand began Tuesday.

Some of the dunes were damaged or destroyed during the winter storm of March 6 and 7.

Maritech, the contractor hired for the project, will bring in a bulldozer to scrape sand up from the high tide mark to the dune line.

Crews will work on 1,000 linear feet of beach between 430 and 906 North Fort Fisher Boulevard.
