Grassy Island Crossing


The byway is named for Grassy Island, a group of earthen masses in the Pee Dee River north of Blewett Falls Lake along the Anson/Richmond County line. Along the route, travelers will pass by pine and hardwood forests, swamps, and farms along the banks of the Pee Dee River. The Pee Dee River, formed by the junction of the Yadkin and Uwharrie rivers in Montgomery County, flows south along the Anson/Richmond County line and into South Carolina where it empties into Winyah Bay. When nearing the end of the route, the byway begins to feature the geological transition between the lowland Piedmont region to the Uwharrie Mountain expanse. Neighboring the byway to the south is Blewett Falls Lake, which provides recreation opportunities for the public through boat ramps and access points for fishing on the lake.
