It's a different world today.  Without the normal number of security staff, guides, rangers, and maintenance employees keeping an eye on things the monuments could easily become attractive targets for terrorism.  There were already a number of instances of people defacing the monuments earlier this year before the furloughs removed most of those who keep watch.

According to that, the federal government put those there to stop people from stopping *on the side of the road* to view Mount Rushmore, to encourage them to use the actual viewing areas where you pull off. So that, you know, you don't have a bunch of cars on the side of the road blocking the breakdown lane and slowing down traffic. None of the actual viewing areas were closed.

But, yeah, some people will continue to insist that it's something else because socialism.
