Here's the Michigan version on the left.  Older signs say "STRAIGHT THRU".

Wisconsin does something similar to Michigan when a state or US route gets cosigned for a short distance on the interstate. This is I/US-41 with Wis 167.

This is a different situation (trumpet interchange at the end of a freeway).

J N Winkler:
I find it kind of strange that the side that merges into eastbound I-40 has its own exit number.  In Kansas, for example, I-235 has no exit number for either the arm that merges with eastbound K-254 (at the North Junction) or the one that merges with southbound I-135 (just north of the Turnpike interchange).

And I suspect the (too-small) upward-pointing arrow on the sign is an artifact of OTA cheaping out and not providing overhead signing.

Here's a California example. This is I-15 NB at the southern junction with CA 79 in Temecula. They are cosigned for about three miles through town, hence this sign just before the southern exit. It doesn't help the CA 79 people any, though, and cosignage on the shared alignment is (Caltrans-typical) poor. If you go a little bit ahead, there's a "NORTH 79 ahead-arrow" trailblazer, but it's before the onramp carrying CA 79 also.
