Road conditions okay in the lower elevations, slick on Interstate 26 near Sam's Gap
The Tennessee Highway Patrol reports road conditions are in good shape in the lower elevations. THP officials say roads should be okay in Johnson City, Bristol and Kingsport. However, dispatchers tell us bridges could be icy and there could be black ice in spots.
