My traps feel really sore after yesterdays workout where i only hit shoulders and triceps, perhaps i hit them indirectly, but is it okay to work back and bis today? thanks.

If you use too much weight/poor form while doing side raises or upright rows you can make them trap dominant. This is a fairly common mistake. That might explain what happened.
As for lifting back today, should not be a problem. Just listen to your body. If your traps are getting overworked then adjust your workout appropriately.Jesus is my lifting partner.

That said it should be normal to have a little soreness there after working shoulders, especially if you already have pretty big traps and your not working them often.

I have exactly the same... For the first time in a long while I tried supersetting throughout the entire workout and my form suffered tremendously. Today my bis and traps hurt more than my shoulders :s
I wouldnt worry about your sore traps affecting your back/bi workout though. I doubt they were worked enough yesterday to justify a day off in fear of overworking them today. If you do shrugs on back day, maybe just give them a miss.
