Adding Turns to Network Dataset

Hi Everyone,

I have route data with unique identifiers for links on a road network.  I have created a network dataset and created a turn file.  I have another file that contains the unique identifiers for links and the links that they do not allow turns onto (i.e. UID: 7942409 does not allow left turns onto UID 5931616). 

My question is whether there is a way to add this information into the turn feature file used in the network without having to manually edit each turn (there are about 20,000)?  For the turn feature file, you need to know the edges and not the id's that relate to the original route file.  I have tried reading up on this but can't seem to find a solution.  Any ideas?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Craig.

p.s. the turn file is just a list of uid's and restricted uid's and a time, if necessary.
