County Road 833 Powell River Bridge

I would assume that 1966 is a relocation or remodel date, but the bridge is definitely much older than that. I would guess it to be about ca.1910

The build date is listed here as 1966, the main span looks much older though. Anyone know if this one might have been an older span that was relocated?
