Default SW Taylors Ferry Road

I will very soon be moving to the SW of Portland, in the vicinity of Riverdale High School. I need to commute to the South Waterfront, near the tram terminal, and I've been trying to determine the best cycling route.

Google maps is suggesting that I head down SW Taylors Ferry and connect to the waterfront bike path. This certainly seems the most direct route, but after driving down Taylors Ferry this weekend I'm a little hesitant.

One lane downhill, 40mph speed limit and a marginal shoulder. Would this route be suicidal during rush hour in poor weather? I've spent very little time biking in the SW, but I know it's reputation as the least bike-friendly part of Portland.
