NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- The Tennessee Regulatory Authority announced the creation of a 629 area code on Thursday.


The code will be an "overlay" option to address a shortage of phone numbers in the Middle Tennessee region. The new code will make its debut in spring of 2015.


The 615 area code is quickly running out of numbers, leading to the need for an additional area code to address a growing population. Those with current 615 area codes will keep their numbers, but will require ten-digit dialing for local calls within the area as well as the new 629 area code.
