If you're talking commercial, DFW would have the most, at seven. If you would like to include AFB's (Air Force Bases) then Edward's Air Force Base would have the most. If you look on a sector chart, Edward's only technically has 3 runways, but those are paved runways. If you include the desert/sand runways, there's dozens.
Hope this helps!
Cleared to IAH via CLL 076 radial/BAZBL/RIICE3, up to 3k, 7k in 10, departure on 134.3, squawk 4676, Colgan 9581.
The runways to be eliminated at O'Hare are 14R/32L and 14L/32R. After the reconfiguration is complete - KORD will be able to operate almost all of the seven runways at the same time, something they cannot do today due to the intersections. Three current runways each cross two others. In the revised plan, there will only be two runways crossing one, and that one will cross those two - so usage will be limited but much less than today.
KDFW is in preliminary stages of adding a sixth north/south runway - which will become 18L/36R. The current 18L/36R will become 18C/36C. However, this new runway will cross 13R/31L.
I know KDEN has a lot of room - but I don't see any master plan to expand beyond the current six runways. I can see where another two N/S runways can be added outside the current four and where two more E/W runways can be added outside the current two. So getting to ten is easily possible. I doubt that KDEN will ever support that level of traffic though.

Quoting KBMIFlyer (Reply 14): KDFW is in preliminary stages of adding a sixth north/south runway - which will become 18L/36R. The current 18L/36R will become 18C/36C. However, this new runway will cross 13R/31L.
I thought this was put on hold several years ago, especially after AA depeaked its hub. Is 18L/36R now moving forward? I know it's in the master plan, but I haven't heard anything locally about it. Aren't the remaining perimeter taxiways likely to be completed first?
