County Road 4145 stems east from U.S. 17 & 92 (Volusia Avenue) along Graves Avenue in Orange City to cross Interstate 4 at the Deltona city line. Howland Boulevard arcs the suburban route southeast between Three Island Lakes and Dupont Lake through Deltona. The south end connects with Florida 415 near Osteen.

Howland Boulevard was widened to four lanes from Courtland Boulevard southeast to SR 415 during a $11.1-million project underway from January 2015 to September 2016.1 That leaves just a 2.1-mile segment of Howland Boulevard, from Elkcam Boulevard northwest to Providence Boulevard, with two lanes.

Historically Graves Avenue east to Kentucky Avenue was a part of Florida 430A. Redesign of the trumpet interchange joining Interstate 4 with Florida 472 in the mid 2000s realigned Howland Boulevard to directly tie into the exchange. This also slightly shifted CR 4145 so that its navigate through a signalized intersection at the east end of Graves Avenue.
