You should visit salary.com for region-specific salaries. In Houston, TX an EIT was hired out of college at $49k, and was raised to $53.5k after 7 months. I also know that an engineer III (~3 yrs. experience) at the same company earns about $65k/yr. From my job searching, it appears as though smaller companies are paying more for Civil EIT's than mid-size companies becuase the smaller ones have a harder time attracting them. However, large companies (Becthel, KBR, etc.) are paying more than mid-size companies, but the competition for job seekers is much stiffer.
