Highway Trust Fund Ticker

The Surface Transportation and Veterans Health Care Choice Improvement Act of 2015 (P.L. 114-41) authorized General Fund transfers to the Highway Account and Mass Transit of the Highway Trust Fund.

The current chart shows:

  • that the Highway Account will drop below safe levels on December 18, 2015 (see the monthly FHWA view below).

However, it is important to note that most programs funded through the Highway Trust Fund are only authorized to spend money through November 20, 2015.  A November 20 lapse in authorization prevents new obligations in the Highway and Transit accounts and impacts reimbursements to the States and other entities.

More detailed information on the weekly cash balances in the Highway Account for FY 2016 is provided in the chart below.  Please note, actual weekly cash balances may vary from estimates due to normal variation in revenue deposits and payments to the States.
