In the winter..they lower the gates to stop traffic if the roads are too bad to travel.

They are closing the roads due to bad weather.
They now have lights and some times arms to enforce the closer.
If you are caught driving while the roads are closed you may be fined $500.
The same fine of $500 is also applied during a rescue.

Bummer, guess its time to break out the skidoo
