The road was initially closed to install a water main extension and then to perform repairs on the new main.
City staff were unable to commit to a specific date for when the road could be expected to reopen.
The truck left the roadway and rolled into an adjacent field.
A leak in the recently installed water main extension was detected so the road will need to be closed while workers investigate.
The crash occurred when a truck failed to yield to a vehicle in the roundabout according to police.
It appeared the driver had suffered a medical emergency just prior to the crash.
The closure will be in place during overnight hours.
Drivers are advised to use alternate routes when possible as long delays can be expected.
