Of course the other problem with this road is that it will be snowed in half of the year and it is primarily linking up two sparsely populated areas with little industry or population. They're not talking about laying down cement from London all the way to NY, they're assuming you'll use existing roads for the majority of the trip. This is just about filling in a few gaps (including the incredibly expensive one over the ocean).
That said, if you talk about maybe just a ferry service over the strait this isn't completely unreasonable. You would need something to link up Alaska with the lower 48, but I doubt Russians would be paying for that.
The big lesson is that when a car spawns in Skylines it chooses a path at that very instant and absolutely will not deviate from the path. So all cars will all merge into the same lane because that's the lane that goes to your industrial district if that's how you have your roads laid out. Modders may be able to fix this as well.
One piece of advice is not to use the built-in traffic circles (roundabouts), because they suck. Instead, build your own out of interstate road segments (the kind that don't have buildings next to them) and exit ramps. The reason is that interstates don't have stoplights on every corner so the traffic will flow through them smoothly. Also, don't be afraid to use the big 6 lane roads. Final tip: the "traffic view" in the statistics only measures road use, not congestion. Simply being heavily trafficked will turn it red, even if there is no appreciable congestion.
