Easton's Bible Dictionary
A raised road for public use. Such roads were not found in Palestine; hence the force of the language used to describe the return of the captives and the advent of the Messiah (Isaiah 11:16; 35:8; 40:3; 62:10) under the figure of the preparation of a grand thoroughfare for their march.

During their possession of Palestine the Romans constructed several important highways, as they did in all countries which they ruled.

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
(n.) A road or way open to the use of the public; a main road or thoroughfare.
