Changes coming to area code

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The amount of cell phones in one area has resulted in an overloaded area code.

The Kentucky Public Service Commission announced several residents who live within the 270 area code will change to a new code, 364.

Beginning in February 2014 people who live in the 270 area code will have to dial 364 for all calls, including local calls.

One month later, the new 364 code will start to be assigned to new customers.
