Michigan Area Codes


Michigan Area Code Overlays
(248 and 947)


Michigan is currently using twelve area codes. Michigan is utilizing one area code overlay plan, often called an overlay complex. Michigan currently has one area code which is assigned to provide numbering relief but is not yet in service.

Michigan originally had three area codes, 313, 517 and 616, when the numbering system was established in 1947. By 1961 Michigan experienced sufficient growth in population and telephone use to need an additional area code. To meet this increase in demand area code 616 was split in 1961 to form area code 906. It was thirty two years later before the demand for new numbers in Michigan required a second split of area code 313 to form area code 810. In 1993 Michigan had five area codes in use. To keep up with demand seven area codes were added between 1997 and 2002.
