traffic/ commute advice

I am about to start needing to get to Sherwood from inner NE once a week in the early evening. The Rush Hour Fear grabs me just saying that, but I have to make this drive! I thought maybe some of you DPers would have some advice on routes I could take to avoid the worst of the worst traffic in the evening rush hour. Also, even if you have no route advice (or there's no real way to avoid the mess), could you tell me how long it should take to get to Sherwood from inner NE?

I do know about the google maps traffic thingey where you can change it to show the density of traffic at any time of day, any day of the week, but seeing "red" vs "green" still doesn't really tell me how much time to plan in!

many thanks to anyone with any wisdom to share.
