Clay soil always used in construction of road especially in subgrade layer, however this type of soft soil create difficulty in construction due to its properties. This soil experiences a high clay content, which is when their moisture content is increase their potential to swell is high [1]. Clay soil also have low permeability and shear strength and also high compressibility. Among of the problems in the construction when clay soil is used are enormous post construction settlement on excavation and embankment construct, and also an inadequate bearing capacity [2].
