Also, the On/Off ramps are not that difficult to navigate... Look behind you...
Wait till it's clear... Signal your turn... Turn... Keep Riding.
It is noisy, and there are a lot of cars, but they all are going the same way you are, and there's no stopsigns/lights, driveways, dogs, iPloders, or gaps in the bikelane (of course it's a shoulder, and at times very narrow (ie: under Hall, past Greenburg)), but I haven't had too much trouble.
I must say there is that guilty pleasure of passing cars stuck in the rush hour crawl.
