What We've Done
Victory Trucking & Supply is continually engaged in projects that improve transportation arteries and communities in general. These projects result in faster, safer travel in both town and country. We also participate in projects that create new facilities for businesses and residential living.
Here are just a few of the recent jobs taken on by Victory.
The Hoosier Heartland Industrial Corridor
This big project was dreamed up in the early 1960s, but it wasn’t until recently that it became a reality. During 2009 and 2010, Victory provided the trucking services. They produced, supplied, and hauled the ready-mix concrete used to complete this project. Going through four Indiana counties and three Ohio counties, the corridor connects I-65 at Lafayette, Indiana, to I-75 near Toledo, Ohio.
Culminating in 2012, this project took four years to complete and resulted in a quicker, safer connection for everyone and increased economic opportunities for businesses. The project extended Maplecrest Road from Lake Avenue in Fort Wayne to Adams Center Road at Indiana 930 in New Haven. The extension features a new four-lane road with curbs and gutters and four new bridges. Victory supplied trucking and concrete hauling.
U.S. Route 31
U.S. 31 is a major highway that runs all the way from Alabama to northern Michigan. Victory produced, hauled, and supplied both ready-mix and wet batch concrete for five segments of this massive project to improve U.S. 31 within Indiana.
Ash Skyline Plaza
When completed in 2016, the Ash Skyline Plaza will be a new Fort Wayne landmark. The complex will feature a nine-story building that will house the national headquarters for Ash Brokerage and include a residential component, retail outlets, and a parking garage. For this project, Victory has supplied trucking.
Victory is part of a current $24.4 million project that includes repaving I-469 between U.S. Route 27 and Winchester Road in Fort Wayne. Victory is providing field offices, wastewater management for hydro demolition, trucking, hauling concrete, and bringing in barrier walls to protect workers and opposing vehicles when traffic is limited to two lanes. Initiated in 2015, the project is set for completion in the fall of 2016. I-469, renamed in honor of former U.S. President Ronald Reagan in 2004, goes east from I-69 south of Fort Wayne and rejoins I-69 north of the city.
