Abstract: This paper examined the basic engineering and geotechnical properties of poor 

subgrade soils using woven geotextile to stabilize it and to also deal with the problem with lime 

under soaked conditions, it is intended at increasing the strength and mechanical properties of 

the soil even in extreme conditions. This is considered to be of great importance in civil 

engineering works as road structures need to be catered for during rainy season. Subgrade 

soils, its properties like plasticity and strength are essential to the design of pavement 

structures and any road construction. Experiments were carried out to investigate the 

application of woven geotextile on lime stabilized lateritic soils under soaked conditions. 

Geotechnical test were carried out to determine particle size analysis, atterberg, compaction 

and California bearing ratio test. CBR test were carried out by placing the geotextile at 

varying depths under soaked conditions to determine the bearing capacity of the soil. The 

result shows that the strength of lateritic soil is visibly increased by introducing geotextiles at 

different layers in the soil. It is found that geotextile placed at 3/5 the distance from the base 

showed higher CBR value by comparison the control result. The strength of the laterites was 

considerably increased. It has low maintenance, corrosion resistance, no threat to human 

health and increases the service life of road pavement. Geotextiles should be considered when 

dealing with the problems with lime and as a modernized form of improving road construction 

on poor laterites under soaked conditions.
