Security measures have resulted in the placement of concrete traffic barriers on the approach roads to Parker Dam. The barriers narrow the roadway to approximately eight feet. This means that only personal vehicles such as automobiles, pickup trucks and passenger vans will be allowed to use the roadway across the Parker Dam. Trucks, RVs, motorhomes and other large vehicles will no longer be able to cross the dam.

The Parker Dam roadway is closed at night to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic, beginning at 10 p.m. Mountain Standard Time.

There used to be self-guided tours of the Parker Dam power plant, but they are no longer available.
