This paper conducted the EN-1 ionic liquid improved soil comparison and evaluation between the stabilization soil and the stabilized aggregate materials in order to analyze its economic cost and solve the issues of road base material selection with the multiple influence factors. Firstly analytic hierarchy process (AHP) was used to establish the hierarchical structure of the decision index and the weight of each indicator in an index layer. Secondly the fuzzy relation matrix of the evaluation criteria were determined by expert evaluation method, and then a comprehensive fuzzy evaluation model can be established for the selection of road base materials. Finally, based on the comprehensive sequencing of different materials derived from fuzzy mathematical calculations, the optimal selection can be achieved. The proposed evaluation model comprehended the availability of material, construction requirements, load capacity, durability, energy consumption, environment protection and material cost etc. This research provided a theoretical basis as well as an effective and practical solution for the future development of highway construction in China.
