Woodhaven Road Extension bad for Bikes?

I don't know and I can't tell from this website. There has been no analysis on how the highway, road widenings, ramps and turn lanes will affect bicycle travel. This is something that many traffic engineers refuse to do. The environmental impact statement gives a few scant references on bicycling and one alternative does state the Byberry Road will be more accommodating for bikes.

You can comment on the environmental impact statement you can find out how here, they will not accept email (eliminating email comments has become a common tactic to reduce public input).
