It actually makes a lot more sense if you look at a map of the city. Ann Arbor is home to University of Michigan, the central campus (the diag) of which is bounded by North University (to the north), South University (to the south), East University (to the east, although not a drivable road), and South State Street (to the west). From that perspective, it's South State Street that's the oddball. ;)
In Commerce Township, Michigan, traveling west on West Commerce, you can turn north onto North Commerce then west onto East Commerce.
