Explanation:
"Macadam" is a sort of tar used for roads. It translates as "macadam" or "macadán" (the adapted Spanish form). You don't provide much context, but I guess it is talking about a road tarred long ago which hasn't been tarred since, so it is in very poor conditions...

Explanation:
La expresión "macadam" es muy infrecuente en español. "Asfaltar" sería la expresión habitual para referirse a una calzada recubierta de una superficie dura (a excepción de los adoquines, claro)
