Macadam Process being performedMacadam system pavements were originated in the late 1800’s improving upon techniques developed by the Romans. John Loudon Macadam pioneered a technique of mixing appropriately sized crushed stone with hot liquid asphalt to form a permanent pavement. This was due to the fact that in the beginning, modern day asphalt plants simply hadn’t been discovered yet.

Riverside Asphalt Services continues to provide Macadam surfaces to customers in the market for a superior product, which is longer lasting, more aesthetically pleasing and more resilient than a conventional asphalt pavement.
