The incident happened at 2.30am but recovery of the vehicle is expected between 7am and 8am.
A police spokesman said: “I don’t believe there are any injuries.
“Drivers coming out of Aberdeen are being diverted onto the A90, new bypass at Charleston.”
Drivers have also been warned about icy conditions this morning.
A spokeswoman for Aberdeen City Council said: “Sleet and wet snow has washed all the residual salt off the roads and pavements – gritters were out earlier and are just going out again on main roads, and will be out from 4.45am, but if weather conditions continue, it will be icy.”
