New 582 Area Code Established

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) has announced that the new area code serving portions of the current 814 area code will be 582.

The PUC voted on December 16 to approve a plan to split the 814 area code along geographic boundaries to avoid running out of phone numbers, creating a new area code for customers in portions of northwestern Pennsylvania.

The new area code will be implemented on February 1, 2012 for portions of the current 814 area code west of Jefferson, Elk and McKean counties. The boundary runs in a north/south direction east of Shinglehouse, Wilcox, Kersey, Dubois and Sykesville rate centers. Maps showing the county split and the rate center split are available on the Commission’s website.

Callers will still be able to access phone numbers using the 814 area code for a six month period following the changeover.
