(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Southern Nevada is about to get a second area code.

The state Public Utilities Commission has added the 725 code, because available prefixes in the current 702 area code are running out.

Starting in May 2014, new residents will get the 725 area code, and everyone will have to dial either 725 or 702 for outgoing calls.

There will be a nine-month transition.
