Restriction for one direction on a bi-directional segment

I'm working on an application to route oversize vehicles.  I've built the network dataset from the Navteq data and have applied a number of restrictions to route oversize vehicles.  One remaining issue has to do with mast arm features which affect travel in only one direction on a bi-directional road.  Mast arms typically extend over only part of a road:  i.e. an overheight truck would not be able to pass going northbound, but southbound is OK because the mast arm only extends over the northbound side of the road.  Applying a network height parameter on that segment causes the route solver to avoid that segment regardless of direction of travel.  I would like to be able to allow southbound travel, but not northbound.  The feature class represents the road as a single line feature, its "DIR_TRAVEL" attribute is coded as "B" to allow travel in both directions.  Am I missing some Netowrk Analyst capability that can help with this issue?
