That's not what trunk means - it's supposed to have significant motorway
features, like some degree of limited access, very few lights, and very
few at-grade intersections.  There are bits of Memorial Drive that begin
to approach that, but certainly the area around Alewife is no where
close, and arguably none of it does.

Also, it isn't more important than a US highway.  It's a local commuting
road, and hardly ever used for long-distance travel.
