The monthly construction reports you normally see on Aggregates Manager — like construction spending [2], construction employment [3], freight shipments [4] and housing starts [5] — 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 [6] alone, has resulted in the suspension of most federal government operations [7] that are not considered safety-related or necessary.

Reuters reported [8] 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.
