The truck hit the bridge on Titirangi Road between Margan Avenue and Great North Road just before 8.30am this morning.
Auckland Transport says trains cannot run over the bridge until it has been inspected.
It's encouraging commuters to take buses instead.
"A rail shuttle is currently operating between Swanson and Henderson and vice versa, so customers can connect to scheduled bus services at Henderson," Auckland Transport said on Twitter.
