The monthly construction reports you normally see on Aggregates Manager — like construction spending, construction employment, freight shipments and housing starts — are likely suspended due to the federal government shutdown that began early Tuesday morning.

The shutdown, which has furloughed 18,481 employees in the U.S. Department of Transportation alone, has resulted in the suspension of most federal government operations that are not considered safety-related or necessary.

Reuters reported Tuesday that the construction spending report for this month has been cancelled.

A Commerce Department spokeswoman told Reuters on Monday that the report would not be released if the government shut down.
