Dune erosion forced a portion of the North Wildwood beach to be closed.

The beach between 3rd and 5th Avenues remains closed today after being closed off yesterday morning.

Officials shut down the area around 7 a.m. Wednesday morning to allow for replenishment of the dunes. Police announced the closure would only last for two days.

Three people have died since 2009 near that area due to sand collapsing.

The area is marked off by an orange fence.

The beach is set to reopen Friday morning.
