Colorado Area Code Overlays
303 and 720


Colorado is currently using four area codes. Colorado has had two area code splits and one area code overlay plan, often called an overlay complex.

Area code 303 originally covered all of Colorado when it was established in 1947. It was not until 1988 that Colorado experienced sufficient growth in population and telephone use to need an additional area code. It was at that time that area code 303 was split to form area code 719. In 1995 area code 303 was split again to form area code 970. In 1998 area code 720 was put into use as an overlay of area code 303.

Today area code 303 and 720 covers central Colorado including Boulder and Denver. Area code 719 covers southeastern Colorado including Pueblo and Colorado Springs. Area code 970 covers northern and western Colorado including Aspen, Durango, Grand Junction and Fort Collins.
