The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) has received notice that the number “582” will be the new overlay area code for the current “814”, which covers all or parts of twenty-seven (27) counties across Central and Northwestern Pennsylvania. Once the supply of available telephone numbers with the current 814 code are exhausted, the new code number (582) will be assigned to new telephone numbers. According to the PUC, the use of an overlay code preserves existing phone numbers for residents and businesses in the region. The existing 814 code was established in 1947 and is one of the four original area codes for Pennsylvania.
