Road conditions okay in the lower elevations, slick on Interstate 26 near Sam's Gap

Tri-Cities -

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.

But, it's a different story in the higher elevations. THP officials report roads are snow-covered and slick on Interstate 26 in the Sam's Gap area of Unicoi County. Dispatchers say if you live in the mountains, the road conditions will be slippery. News Channel 11's Mike Lamia and Ted Overbay traveled up to Sam's Gap and got footage of what you can expect if you plan to travel to the higher terrain, just click on the video link.
