In the present investigation 8 soil samples were studied, with additions of 5 and 7% of addition of sugar Cane Bagasse Ash (SCBA), Portland Cement (PC) and combinations of these in different proportions. The characterization and classification of the study soil was carried out, determining the Natural Humidity, Granulometric Curve, Consistency Limits, soil classification according to the Unified Soil Classification System (USCS) and AASHTO compaction. The results show that the use of the SCBA is viable to significantly improve the physical properties of the granular soil type Hydraulic Base, The partial substitution of SCBA for PC according to the results can be considered that it would contribute to more durable and therefore economical roads. In addition to contributing to the reduction in cement consumption, which would imply a decrease in the release of CO2 into the atmosphere due to the manufacture of Portland Cement.
