The Town of Oak Ridge, Texas is located in Eastern Cooke County. The Town is situated 5 miles east of Gainesville and 28 miles west of Sherman. U.S. Highway 82 is the only major thoroughfare in the Town and traverses the northern edge of the Town.

The traversal of this major thoroughfare, as well as other lesser roadways, has influenced and will continue to contribute to the development of Oak Ridge and the surrounding area. The future development of Oak Ridge will also be heavily influenced by the competition which occurs between Oak Ridge and the other communities and cities in the “Texoma” region of the state.
