An area code overlay that was approved by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission will begin soon.  Beginning April 3rd, all phone calls made within area code 814 must be placed using the area code plus the seven-digit telephone number. Seven-digit calls within this area will no longer be completed.  Beginning May 1st, new telephone lines may be assigned numbers with the new 582 area code.  Some facts about the 582 area code overlay:  Your telephone number, including current area code, will not change.  What is now a local call will remain a local call.  The price of a call or other rates and services will not change due to the overlay.  You can still dial just three digits to reach 911.
