The need for a pavement matrix in road construction, especially in Sumatra area, is now more difficult and expensive because the deposit materials are concentrated in Java and most of them are not available. For this reason, soil stabilization is a way out of this problem. On this basis it is necessary to conduct stabilization research with highly active stabilization material by using Portland cement type I. The soil to be stabilized is clay soil which is derived from the areas of Jambi and Palembang and which has a low CBR value less than the requirement for sub base or pavement (< 10%), with the expected CBR value of stabilization to be suitable for road construction. This research covers physical and soil mechanical properties which are compaction parameter and CBR value with 3 days of dry curing time and 4 days of soak curing time using ASTM test procedure. Variations of cement addition were used of 6%, 8%, and 10% for the clay soil from Palembang and 8%, 10%, and 12% for the clay soil from Jambi, by percentage of dry weight of the sample test. The results of this study showed that the CBR value significantly increased with the addition of cement, with Palembang soil CBR value rising from 3.46% to 130.74% and Jambi soil CBR value rising from 7.20% to 206.43% respectively.
