CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – The Rod Run & Doo Wop is in full swing on Kanawha Boulevard, and that means some traffic changes for drivers in downtown Charleston.

Kanawha Boulevard will reopen Sunday, Oct. 9 in the afternoon, officials say.

On Saturday, Oct. 8, the festivities will conclude with a fireworks show set to begin between 9:30 and 9:45 p.m, which will mean some additional closures beginning Saturday afternoon.
