Can the USN keep the Lexington-class battlecruisers?

While the concept is very much maligned, I'm quite interested in the battlecruiser, and I naturally find the USN's Lexington-class battlecruisers intriguing. This is likely ASB, but how much will the existence of the class as battlecruisers affect the interwar period? It seems fairly obvious the Washington Naval Treaty will very likely either not happen at all or be very different from that OTL.
