PUC Announces Overlay Number for 814 Area Code, Date to Start 10-Digit Dialing

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission has announced that the number “582” will be the new overlay area code for the current 814 area code, which covers all or parts of 27 counties across central and northwestern Pennsylvania. This area code will be assigned to new telephone numbers once the available supply of 814 numbers is exhausted.  

To implement the change, consumers and residents in the 814 region are encouraged to begin voluntarily dialing 10 digits for calls within the 814 region beginning October 3, 2020. Mandatory 10-digit dialing will be required for all calls within the region on April 3, 2021.
