Road Labels One side of Data View

Is there a way to automate labeling road names so that the names are located on the far right side of the data frame or the top of the data frame?

Currently we are labeling the street names and converting the labels to annotation. After that we need to edit the labels and move them to the appropriate location. Then if we need to move the extent of the map, we have to move the labels again.

Any suggestions on how to streamline this process? I have attached an example map of the types of labels I would like!
