Tasmania Police said the truck and trailer were marooned about five kilometres south of Pyengana in the area of the saddle.
As a result, a complex operation - involving a crane - needed to be undertaken to remove the truck and trailer from the roadside.
Tasmania Police said the operation was due to start at 7.30 tomorrow morning and would cause delays for several hours.
"A traffic management plan has been developed to minimise the impact on traffic flow but members of the community are encouraged to delay travel through the area until after the operation has been completed," they said.
