Not sure about 485 but 495 is the longest of three major arteries around Boston. Traffic is usually lighter than the other two at any given time.
Rt 95 is okay as long as you are thru the city by 6:30AM or after 9:30 AM. Or before 3:00pm or after 6:30pm.
Rt 93 is thru the tunnel but do-able with in the same times as Rt 95.
I do 93 and 95 both northbound and southbound regularly. You will not save any time by going 93. Go 95 unless you can't avoid peak times. Then 495 is a long haul around but it will keep you out of most of the traffic.
If you are going on a weekend watch out for what is going on at the "Gahden", Fenway, Gillette Stadium or the Comcast center. They can all throw you for a loop!
Hope this helps.
