How to use "Macadamized" in context?
When most people think of "macadamized," they might think of a smooth, non-paved surface. This is actually a type of road surfacing, which was originally developed in Scotland in the 1820s. The method uses a mixture of coarse sand and broken stones to form a rough surface that is then smoothed by the traffic.
In the late 1800s, macadamized roads were starting to be replaced by other types of road surfacing, like asphalt. But over time, macadamized roads have been re-used and restored in some places, like in the Scottish Highlands.
