Amazon did release a statement concerning the closures, cancellations, and delays:

“While we’re closing some of our older sites, we’re also enhancing some of our facilities, and we continue to open new sites as well. In fact, since 2020, we’ve added more than 350 new modern facilities to our network in the U.S. alone and have dozens more facilities under construction here in the U.S. and around the world.”

The good news for Amazon Pasco warehouses is that the project is delayed until 2023.

Amazon had originally hoped to open warehouses located at 1351 S. Road 40 East and 1202 S. Road 40 East in Pasco in 2022 but it looks like the project will get delayed until 2023 but it's still a go according to the company.
