Another common circumstance is if you have two highways that pass through the same town (for example, one runs nominally southeast to northwest, the other runs nominally southwest to northeast).  They may well both include the same street that runs west to east, which would be marked as part of both highways for routing purposes, as well as being marked by the street name as well.
