Southern Indiana to get new area code

Posted: Updated:

JEFFERSONVILLE, IN (WAVE) - The 812 area code will no longer be the only one for southern Indiana.

The supply of available 812 telephone numbers will max out by March of 2015.

Now, the State's Utility Regulatory Commission is considering new options and have scheduled 10 public meetings to discuss the issue.

The meetings will be held all over Indiana. The closest meeting will be on at 6 p.m. on March 11 at Jeffersonville High School, located on Allison Lane.
