This aim of the present work is to study the effect of varying curing conditions namely temperature that was studied within rang from 10o to 60odegrees Celsius. Curing period between two to ninety days was also studied for the unconfined compressive strength (UCS) & hydraulic conductivity of lime treated clayey soil selected for Mosul city. The soil was treated with (2,4 and 6)% hydrated lime. Test Results showed that the UCS was increased with curing temperature increase especially at lower curing period. On the other hand, hydraulic conductivity of treated soil has increased with temperature compared with that of untreated soil but not with constant trend. Finally, leaching of treated soil has led to a decline in hydraulic conductivity with time, while the rate of decreasing was found to be more with samples exposed to higher temperature effect.
