If an accident causes congestion, the SL drops in advance of the accident, so that you're going slowly before you hit the rear of the backup. Once the congestion clears, the SL goes back to what it was.

Is the speed limit reduced (or increased) by computer or does a human being in the Turnpike's control center have to do something to change it?

It's all coordinated through the State Transportation Management Center, with human beings. There are protocols in place, but you have to have a human observing to make the decisions.

If they ever build another exit in that area and call it 15Y, I wouldn't be surprised. 15A would be really weird. Are there any places on any freeway where they needed to add another exit after E and W or N and S pairs? If so, what was it numbered?

New York has used A in places like the Meadowbrook (M3AW, M3AE, just to be awesome).

Since when does the Meadowbrook Parkway have exits M3AW and M3AE?  Maybe you're thinking of the Southern Parkway with exits 28AN and 28AS.  That's the only place where I'm aware of a double letter suffix.

No, I was thinking of a different parkway - SM3W, SM3E, SM3A. I had most of the letters right!

Those EXIT gore signs... what the actual fuck? Might as well as use Series B to cram everything into the sign. Love the use of an upside down 'M' for 'W'. (I was kidding.)
