New Area Code Coming To Nearby Counties

HOUSTON (AP) _ Houston, say hello to your new area code.

The Public Utility Commission of Texas announced Thursday that the Houston area starting July 1, 2014, will be getting its fourth area code _ 346 _ to accommodate continuing growth in the region.

The commission says the 346 code will overlay existing area codes 713, 281 and 832 in Harris, Fort Bend, Waller, Austin, Montgomery, San Jacinto, Liberty, Chambers, Galveston and Brazoria counties.

The North American Number Planning Administrator assigned the 346 area code after projecting that the three existing ones will run out of numbers by Sept. 30, 2014.
