United States Postal Service mail processing facilities in Altoona, Erie, Greensburg, Lancaster, New Castle, Reading, Scranton, Washington and Williamsport, as well as the Southeastern operation are slated to close.
The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission voted today to split up the (814) area code. This area code, which covers from Erie County to the Maryland border, is running out of phone numbers.
The PUC considered three proposals on how to divide up this massive swath of Pennsylvania. Of the four original Pennsylvania area codes established in 1947, (814) was the last area code to remain unchanged.
Below is as link to the PA PUC website showing the county split. The new area code number has yet to be determined.
