The focus of the paper is to evaluate the effectiveness of using rice husk ash (RHA) as apuzzuolanae to enhance the lime treatment of soil. The paper presents the influence of different mix proportions of lime and RHA on compaction, strength properties, CBRvalues and durability characteristics of soil. The results show that addition of RHAenhances not only the strength development but also the durability of lime stabilized soil.Keywords:
