Subgrade was a very important part to support all construction loads on it. If the clay subgrade that had
unfavorable properties, such as low CBR, the high swelling when applied to the construction of the road subgrade soil would produce a soil that is easily damaged. For that, if used in the construction of CBR value should be towering so that it can withstand a load on it. The swelling would reduce the volume of soil that is stable when it rains the soil is not swollen, otherwise when the dry season does not shrink too high. Ground improvement methods used in this study was stabilization of lime-soil, using a mixture of percentage 5%, 10% and 15% of the lime. Tests performed on the Atterberg
limits, Compaction (Standard Proctor Test), C.B.R laboratory, and Swelling. The results of the study about a large percentage of the value of lime plasticity (liquid limit, plasticity index) decreased with the increasing compaction. The average CBR value is increased for the natural soil to percentage 5% and 10% of lime, while the percentage of 15% decreased. For the swelling, the percentage of 15% lime with 24 hours immersion showed 45.28% increase in swelling of
the normal soil (i.e. 31.67% to 17.33%) So in general the best for clay soil stabilization is Pakuwon area where the addition of 10% lime CBR values obtained optimum and could reduce swelling value.
Keywords: lime, stabilization, CBR, swelling.
