SAN DIEGO -- Two Navy guided-missile destroyers are receiving maintenance and upgrades in San Diego.
The ships are currently dry-docked at the BAE Systems shipyard, just south of the Coronado Bridge.
A company spokesperson told FOX 5 this is the first time a company on the West Coast has been given the task to clean and upgrade two guided-missile destroyer ships simultaneously.
Both ships weigh about 9,000 tons each and took 16 hours to load into position.
Officials said the ships will be out of service for about a year.
