Most likely, yes. The 1940 Census included road names. Some rural area streets may be a little more difficult to pin down (compared to larger cities) but it should be possible.
If you don't mind sharing the location/street you are looking for, we can check it out for you.
Yes one can find this information. The name of streets are listed, written vertically, on the far left column vertically of the censuses pages. The next column would contain the house number. The census taker was instructed to go house to house walking around the block, so that in most cases the odd numbered houses are in one list and the even number houses would be another list within the ED (enumeration district) for that town. If the street was more than one block long, the residents may appear in several different sections as the census taker went around each block. If the town was large enough to have more than one ED, then the street might have been the dividing line between 2 EDs, so residents would appear in different EDs depending which side of the street or which section of the street they lived on. If you notice that certain house numbers are missing, go to the end of the pages for that ED. Census takers often went back to houses where no one was at home and records them (along with their address) at the end of an ED.

Dear Ms. Calhoun,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1940 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that should contain records of the town. The 1940 Census schedules are digitized and available using the Catalog. See NARA’s 1940 Census Records web page for more information.
Most census schedules are available online by our digitization partners. For more information about accessing digitized census schedules, see https://www.archives.gov/research/genealogy/census/online-resources.
Also, the website https://stevemorse.org/census/unified.html may be used to help identify enumeration district numbers.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
Dear Shirley Calhoun -
The Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps held by the Geography and Map at the Library of Congress may also be of interest.
Details about these holdings and the digital collection can be found on this History Hub thread.
All the best and feel free to contact us if we can be of further assistance.
