Washington State is Getting a New Area Code
Have you heard? There is an area code change coming. The current 360 area code is running out of phone numbers and a new area code is going to be implemented to handle projected increase in demand for new phone numbers. The change was proposed and approved back in 2000 but will be implemented next year. Initially, the new area code will be rolled out in the existing 360 area code areas but eventually will also be issued throughout western Washington including 206, 425 and 253 areas as those area codes become exhausted.
