I'm not sure of the construction situation, but the last time I made that
trip it went something like this:

Take your most convenient route to IR-480W.
IR-480W to IR-80W (Ohio Turnpike)
IR-80W to OH-2W (note it's one or two exits, not sure of the number.  The
exit is not OH-2, but it is marked for "To OH-2")
OH-2W to US-6W (Rye Beach Road)
Right at the exit, left at the light (onto 6), then...

option a)  Right at the first thing that looks like a street, where there
is probably a sign that says "Cedar Point Causeway, Straight Ahead",
follow that road past the expensive houses on Cedar Point, to the main
parking lot

option b)  Follow US-6 into Eastern Sandusky, past the Radisson and
Friday's, turn Right onto Cedar Point Rd., take that down the Causeway to
the main parking lot.

I'll interject here...

Exit the turnpike at SR 57, which is I think the very next exit when you get
on from I-480. Toll .30 or something like that. Take SR 57 north past the
mall and get on I-90/SR 2 west. Be careful not to get back on the turnpike.
Follow the rest of Dave' s directions...

        I made a couple trips to CP last month following basically the same
route and I can tell you that the Ohio Turnpike is, as one would expect,
riddled with construction from Cleveland to Sandusky. They had two lanes
open, but it was slow going with a lot of traffic. OH-2 was
construction-free except for the stretch from Huron to Sandusky, where
it's down to one lane in each direction.

The alternative, if you wish to avoid the turnpike, is to take OH-237
North (Rocky River Rd.) from the airport, to I-90 West to Exit 144,
where you continue on OH-2 West.

That route can be tricky if you're not from the area!   I'll give you two
routes:  but first, you go north from the airport to I-480W, which goes
directly into I-80 which is a toll road, AKA the Ohio Turnpike.

alt # 1 : off at OH 57, half mile or so (good place to stop for gas or food)
north to I-90W.  This splits soon into a fork back to I-80W and to the right,
OH 2, which you want.   Get off OH 2 at Rye Beach Rd and go west.  It's very
easy to miss the Chausee route past the expensive homes to the park:  if you
do, just go on to the Radisson and turn right on to "Cedar Point Rd."

alt #2 :  longer and more expensive, but a bit simpler if you're from outside
the area:
stay on the OH turnpike I-80 to the old exit 7 which is route US 250.  Take it
all the way north to the park.   If you really blow it and miss the 250 exit,
get off I-80 at the next exit 6A which is OH-4, go north and follow the signs.
